SYNOPSIS

In spite of each of their families being merciless enemies, Romeo and Juliet are deeply in love. The rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues will cost Mercutio’s life, causing Romeo a desire of vengeance for the loss of his friend…

PRESENTATION

The star-crossed lovers’ tragic fate inspired Prokofiev a remarkable cinematic score, from the delicate theme of Juliet to the ominous Dance of the Knights. Bolshoi stars Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov wholly embody the two eternal lovers in Alexei Ratmansky’s stunning evocation of love at first sight.

Due to the current events, screenings of the Bolshoi's Romeo and Juliet in cinema initially planned on March 29 will be postponed to June 2020 (dates may vary by country). Please check back regularly at bolshoiballetincinema.com or ask your local cinema for more information.
