Description

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

For the fourth year now, the audience will have the chance to see ballet under the stars. Ballet NdB Open Air will perform alongside other theatres and music concerts as part of the Summer at the Bishop’s Courtyard 2021, continuing in the tradition of successful open air projects in the past, Summer Ballet Cocktail at the Bishop’s Courtyard (2017, 2019) and at the Špilberk castle courtyard (2018). Ballet NdB will now perform the legendary Romeo and Juliet, after a year of cancelled shows at the Janáček Theatre, due to the emergency state. The historical ambience of the courtyard under the St. Peter Cathedral is but perfect for the most famous Shakespearean love story.

The neo-classical adaptation by choreographer Mário Radačovský, directed by Martin Glaser with set designed by Marek Hollý and costumes by Alexandra Grusková in combination with warm summer starry night and fabulous music by Sergei Prokofiev will be most definitely a night to remember. Creative team put together new scenography designed especially for the Bishop’s Courtyard. After its 1938 world premiere here, at the Mahen Theatre in Brno (formerly known as the Theatre on City Walls), Romeo and Juliet will have its premiere at yet another important place in our city.

This Shakespearean drama is one of the most adapted one for dance productions worldwide. Many versions staged by choreographers in 20th century are still performed today. One of the reasons of its popularity might be the evergreen of star-crossed lovers as well as the beautiful poetry of Sergei Prokofiev’s score that is now considered to be amongst the most significant ballet opuses ever. Despite the different setting from the original renaissance Verona, this adaptation sticks to the motive of the very first love spark between two young people. Another dominant theme is the hostile division of the society and the two fighting sides from which are lovers are coming from. It was the creative intention to adapt and retell the story of Romeo and Juliet as an up-to-date dance drama, relevant to the current era and ballet audience.

Suitable for children of 12 years and older.
