Leonid Lavrovsky’s celebrated production of Prokofiev’s 'Romeo and Juliet' is released for the first time in HD, and in a Double Play, blu-ray and DVD package.
Filmed in the historic Mariinsky Theatre in 2013, it stars Mariinsky ballet dancers Diana Vishneva, Vladimir Shklyarov, Alexander Sergeyev, Islom Baimurado and Ilya Kuznetsov and is conducted by Valery Gergiev.
Lavrovsky’s realisation was created at the Mariinsky Theatre in January 1940. The staging has been treasured in St Petersburg ever since and this production still honours that original version. Guided by the dramatic force and lyrical power of Prokofiev’s score, Lavrovsky’s choreography creates a grandly moving portrait of the star-crossed lovers and the Renaissance society which frames their tragedy.
Diana Vishneva [Juliet] is a prize-winner of numerous awards, including the People’s Artist of Russia (2007) title and receipient of the State Prize of Russia (2000), as well as founder of the Diana Vishneva Foundation (2010). Her title roles with the Mariinsky ballet include Giselle (Giselle), Nikia in the live cinema broadcast of 'La Bayadčre' and Aurora (The Sleeping Beauty).
Multiple award winner Vladimir Shklyarov [Romeo] won 1st prize at the XI International Ballet and Choreography Competition in the 'Solo' category (Moscow, 2009). His repertoire with the Mariinsky includes James (La Sylphide), Count Albrecht (Giselle) and Prince Désiré (The Sleeping Beauty). He has also recently starred in 'La Bayadčre' which was screened across the globe.
