Captured Live from the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow
Romeo and Juliet
Music Sergei Prokofiev
Choreography Alexei Ratmansky
Despite each of their families being merciless enemies, Romeo and Juliet are deeply in love. The rivalry between the two families will cost Mercutio’s life, causing Romeo a desire of vengeance for the loss of his friend.
The star-crossed lovers’ tragic fate inspired Prokofiev’s remarkable cinematic score, from the delicate theme of Juliet to the ominous Dance of the Knights. Bolshoi stars Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov wholly embody the two eternal lovers in Alexei Ratmansky’s stunning evocation of love at first sight.
