Cajkovskij - Romeo and Juliet - ballet

A ballet presentation of the famous story of the Verona lovers, whose love is frustrated by the hatred of their feuding families. This time to the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: with his fantasy – the symphonic prelude of Romeo and Juliet, and with the first phrase of his emotive sixth symphony, entitled “Pathetique”. The death of the lovers is accompanied by music originally linked to the end of another, no less absorbing tale of love: the death of Isolde from Richard Wagner's opera. And the story of the feuding Montagues and Capulets is played out once again before audiences of Křižík's fountain, presenting the sorrowful and at the same time unsurpassable tale of Romeo and Juliet, the descendents of powerful families. We can thus once again enjoy the most famous story of love and tragedy in an unforgettable production for Křižík's fountain. The choreographer and playwright of the fountain is Miroslav Janícek, with performance by the Prague Theatre Ballet directed by Jiří Pokorný.
