The ballet «Romeo and Juliet» (ballet Theatre. P. I. Tchaikovsky)



Ballet in two acts

"There is no sadder story in the world than the tale of Romeo and Juliet ..."
V. Shakespeare

The ballet clearly reveals the main conflict of Shakespeare's tragedy - the collision of bright love with the tribal hostility of the older generation, which characterizes the wildness of the medieval way of life.

The main idea of ​​the St. Petersburg Ballet Theater. P.I. Tchaikovsky "in creating a full-fledged play" Romeo and Juliet "was to combine the amazing music of P. Tchaikovsky with the most lyrical play by W. Shakespeare. For this, musical parts from the great works of Pyotr Tchaikovsky were used, such as: Symphony No. 6, Suite No. 3, Italian Capriccio, Concerto for violin and orchestra and of course Overture-Fantasy Romeo and Juliet.
