Les Ballets de Monte Carlo | Romeo and Juliet

The title of classical ballet that, as per tradition, will accompany the Opera Season will be Romeo and Juliet. The famous story of the two lovers of Verona, played on the notes of Sergej Prokof’ev’s masterpiece, will be danced by the company Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo that in 2022 was welcomed by the Brescia audience with great enthusiasm for the ballet Cinderella. Also this new title will bear the signature of Jean-Christophe Maillot, artistic director of the company, who has created a choreography that upsets the codes of classical dance, while retaining its energy and timeless grace. In fact, the choreographer interprets the well-known Shakespearean tragedy not as a social conflict or a fight between clans regulated by a code of honor, but on the contrary as a fortuitous drama that makes two young lovers die, taken by the games of love than by those of hatred. Romeo and Juliet is a cornerstone of Maillot’s repertoire: a classic vocabulary with a contemporary syntax always at the crossroads of multiple artistic disciplines.
