Live streamLive stream

Prokofiev's 'Romeo and Juliet' is a ballet based on William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. Prokofiev reused music from the ballet in three suites for orchestra and a solo piano work. Based on a synopsis created by Adrian Piotrovsky (who first suggested the subject to Prokofiev) and Sergey Radlov, the ballet was composed by Prokofiev in September 1935 to their scenario which followed the precepts of 'drambalet' (dramatised ballet, officially promoted at the Kirov Ballet to replace works based primarily on choreographic display and innovation). Performers:

Juliet: Viktoria Tereshkina (act I), Anastasia Matvienko (act II), Olesya Novikova (act III).
Tybalt: Dmitry Pykhachov (act I), Danila Korsuntsev (act II).
Romeo: Yevgeny Ivanchenko (act I) , Andrei Yermakov (act II), Igor Kolb (act III).
Mercutio: Alexei Timofeyev (act I), Alexander Sergeev (act II).
Jester: Daniil Lopatin.
Juliet’s companion: Svetlana Ivanova.
Troubadour: Yevgeny Konovalov.
