Prokofiev: Romeo And Juliet



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Never has a story been narrated as often, and has crossed as many geographic, cultural and class boundaries, as Romeo and Juliet. In ancient Greece a myth, like the wind or a river, crossed lands and cultures, changing from story to story, but always carried its profound meaning. And so, in our day, the myth of Romeo and Juliet crosses the social categories of the western world, and is probably the most well-known story of our culture. The feelings which pervade the story and determine its main structure, rather than the characters and setting, strike our sensibility of Westerners.

Passion, Conflict, Destiny, Love, Death - These are the five elements of this myth.

Aterballetto stands for choreographies brimming with passion. The Prokofiev score is powerful and evocative; the emotions it conveys are universal. The choreographer Bigonzetti focuses on the main message of sensuality and conflict, love and death. His ballet drama of Romeo und Julia pays homage to young people and their desire for taking risks. The Italian video artist Fabrizio Plessi has created a modern stage design with video effects and motorbike costumes for this extravagant ballet version.

"Fabrizio Plessi's stage set possesses an extra - ordinarily evocative power - with mobile hightech contraptions, propellers and striking colours, all in retro-styling, contributing to the overall impact of the ballet, supported by Prokofi ev's music and superb performances by all the artists." Corriere della Sera

BONUS: Interviews with Mauro Bigonzetti, Fabrizio Plessi and Bruno Moretti
