Description

Leonid Lavrovsky’s celebrated production of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, is released for the first time in high definition. Filmed in the historic Mariinsky Theatre in 2013, it stars Mariinsky ballet dancers Diana Vishneva, Vladimir Shklyarov, Alexander Sergeyev, Islom Baimuradov and Ilya Kuznetsov, and is conducted by Valery Gergiev.

 

Guided by the dramatic force and lyrical power of Prokofiev’s score, Lavrovsky’s choreography creates a grandly moving portrait of the star-crossed lovers and the Renaissance society which frames their tragedy.
