Romeo and Juliet as it was meant to be
The beauty and majesty of Russian ballet is something that has gone unquestioned for decades. Ballet practitioners have spent a lifetime honing their craft and then imparting their knowledge through the many ballet academies that populate Russia. Ballet has been a source of pride and culture within Russian society and they have put tremendous amounts of work and effort into their performances.
At the forefront of ballet as an art form is the prestigious Russian National Ballet Theatre. Supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the theatre brings up the best and brightest Russia has to offer and creates stage performances that dazzle the world. The Russian National Ballet Theatre tour internationally, bringing to life such stage plays as Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nut Cracker. This year, they return to Adelaide to delight and entertain with the most iconic romance and tragedy ever known, Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet is choreographed by Evgeny Amosov and is based on the Prokofiev ballet in three acts. With such a creative mind and amazing slew of talent, the Russian National Ballet theatre guarantees a true classical rendition of the age-old tragic love story.
Romeo and Juliet presented by the Russian National Ballet theatre will be showing at Her Majesty's Theatre for one night only on the 16th of November. The show will be open to all ages with children's tickets (2-12) for $69 and Adult tickets for $89. For more information please see this link.
I implore that this is a must-see event to truly witness the Romeo and Juliet ballet as it was originally meant to be. Lovers of the stage and of ballet are sure to enjoy this marvellous night of entertainment.
