Romeo and Juliet ballet in Wroc³aw Opera
   
Romeo and Juliet is one of the best known and most moving love stories in the world. It has inspired directors, painters, composers and choreographers of various periods, says ballet historian Joanna Sibilska. Premiere of Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet took place in the Wroclaw Opera, March 2nd. The director of the performance is Marcin Nalecz-Niesiolowski.
A tragical story between two lovers is decorated with very colourful and vivid music that can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Dancers taking part jointly claim that everyone has their own experiences, because everyone was once sixteen, seventeen and fell in love for the first time, so this feeling is not strange to them.
Juliet’s role is performed by young ballet dancer Natsuki Katayama and it’s her first big gig. She is happy to be performing in front of Wroclaw’s crowd and says that the beautiful music helps her express Juliet’s various emotions.
The music in Romeo and Juliet is romantic with classical elements. Ballet through universality in its form and means of communication is dedicated to the viewers of all ages.
This piece opens a diptych because in the end of March Wroclaw Opera will be premiering I Capuleti e i Montecchi by Vincenzo Bellini.
