Tampere Hall invites friends of ballet to a classic William Shakespeare tragedy, in which Romeo and Juliet fall in love in between the crossfires of two families playing a cruel game of power.
Sergei Prokofiev’s ballet, born from the deathless themes of Shakespeare’s stories, is with no doubt one of the most popular tragedies of the century. Croatian choreographer Valentina Turcu’s sets offer a view of a brave, sultry and brutal era, when matters of life and death were solved passionately. The renaissance painting art and architectural elements used in the productions visual planning are familiar to romanticists of today.
The classic Romeo and Juliet offers beautiful sets and costumes, breathtaking music interpreted by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and world-class ballet performed by the dancers of the Latvian National Ballet. Leading the orchestra is the chief conductor of the Latvian National Opera and Ballet Mārtiņš Ozoliņš.
We reserve the right to changes.
The performance is approx. 2 hours long and includes an intermission.
Production by Tampere Hall, in collaboration with Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra
