Descripción

BALLET IN THREE ACTS (1938)
BASED ON WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S PLAY
CHOREOGRAPHY BY KENNETH MACMILLAN
SUSAN JONES’ CHOREOGRAPHIC REVIVAL
NEW PRODUCTION OF TEATRO COLÓN

Premiered by the Royal Ballet in 1965 with Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn as protagonists, Romeo and Juliet was Kenneth MacMillan's signature play. To Shakespeare's tragedy and Prokoviev's music, the legendary English choreographer and dancer's language, which is stark (away from fairy tales) but highly poetic, is added. MacMillan's work is one of the essential titles in the ballet repertoire. A hypnotic piece well-known but which catches us every time as if it was the first one.

Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64, by Sergei Prokofiev. Original publisher: Prokofiev's Heirs. Exclusive representative Barry Editorial com.Ind.SRL www.barryeditorial.com.ar
