Romeo and Juliet, Ballet at Thursday at The Theater

Romeo and Juliet is a ballet by Sergei Prokofiev based on William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. It is one of the most enduringly popular ballets. Music from the ballet was extracted by Prokofiev as three suites for orchestra and as a piano work.

Based on a synopsis created by Adrian Piotrovsky (who first suggested the subject to Prokofiev) and Sergey Radlov, the ballet in its original form was completed by Prokofiev in September 1935, on commission by the Kirov Ballet, since when he first presented the music to the Bolshoi Ballet that year, they claimed it was “undanceable”. The original version had a “happy” ending, but was never publicly mounted…
