The Russian State Ballet of Siberia and the Orchestra of the Russian State Ballet
Sergei Bobrov Artistic Director
Anatoly Tchepurnoi Music Director and Chief Conductor
Shakespeare's tale of primal passion and timeless tragedy is brought to life by Prokofiev's soaring score, set in bustling Renaissance Verona and with emotionally charged choreography that befits the world's greatest love story. From the grandeur of the masked ball to the intimacy of the lovers' balcony, this star-crossed story of duels, bitter family feuds and love that cannot be, is unmissable.
Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia's leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb, and never fail to delight audiences with their breathtaking physical ability and dazzling costumes.
'It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian ballet to British audiences. Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting. For me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.' Sergei Bobrov, Artistic Director
