National Ballet Theatre of Odessa's "Romeo and Juliet"

About this Event

The National Ballet Theatre of Odessa, Ukraine bring 55 of their most talented and brightest ballet stars to Brooklyn's Kings Theatre to present the most passionate romantic tragedy of all time. "Romeo and Juliet" is perhaps the most choreographed ballet of the last 60 years. This enduring ballet masterpiece is set to Sergei Prokofiev’s magnificent score which was originally completed in 1935. The ballet, "Romeo and Juliet", first arose from a suggestion from the Kirov who requested Prokofiev to write a new ballet. His choice of subject matter proved controversial from the start and the project was taken over by the Bolshoi. The problem was the ending of the story - as Prokofiev later put it, “Living people can dance, the dying cannot.” It was the longest ballet Prokofiev had ever written and the most intensely dramatic. Over a number of years and by working with several different companies, the contradictions between the dramatic and choreographic needs of the ballet were resolved and the work took its place as a centerpiece of his compositions.
