The Mikhailovsky Theatre Showed Romeo and Juliet Directed by Nacho Duato

The Mikhailovsky Theatre in St. Petersburg showed the premiere of the ballet "Romeo and Juliet" directed by the Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato. This is the fourth version of the performance by the music of Sergei Prokofiev since 1976.


The teacher Tony Fabre praises Juliet: it is very nice to work with her, "Natalia Osipova is a great dancer. Her technique is stunning; she feels the music very well. She is a true professional, very focused. It would be great if all the dancers were the same!" There are two Romeos: Leonid Sarafanov and Ivan Vasiliev. "Romeo and Juliet" was staged for the National Ballet of Spain 14 years ago by the current artistic director of the Mikhailovsky Theatre. But in St. Petersburg the costumes are different, the set design is more ambitious, there are twice as many actors as in Spain. This ballet is a love confession to the music by Sergei Prokofiev which the choreographer describes as "one of the best that was ever written for a ballet". Duato does not like the story itself, because it is one more story about a couple who is dying of love.
