That US producers caught in the Ballet «Romeo and Juliet»? First and foremost, top-notch music Sergei Prokofiev and dramatic human tragedy of Shakespeare. In this composition, in our view, ingeniously solved not only the theme of love, but the theme of hatred. This last, modern in its philosophy. Traditions, conventions, prejudices and today can be an obstacle to people communicate among themselves, and sometimes lead to tragedy.
To ballet with Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet" has been accessed many choreographers, stage history of this work is extensive and interesting. In its work on putting together a performance with conductor e. Kolobovym sought to bring Ballet Theatre score composer in its copyright statement. This also applies to the orchestration, and reconstruction bills, and remove from the sheet duplicates introduced into her producers and violate its integrity.
Second, what we have tried to work on the show, is that the Ballet was understandable to viewers without reading the libretto to the viewers empathized with heroes and not unscrambled at the scenes, did not seek in its memory mappings from the original source. In the drama many narrative passages are explained in the text, we can solve them only by horeografi?eski and did it to us – the audience to judge.
And another I want to mention. We are convinced that Shakespeare should be put in šekspirovski, keeping the style of the era, with its succulence, emotionality. All this dictates a figurative action spectacle. As in the design of the artist and the. Sumbatašvili and in its plastic reading Ballet we prudish compared traditional fathers Capulet and Montague, mundane bytovizm nurse and servants and romantic poetry of the main characters.
A big role as full-fledged actor, we give to the people. We want to make the viewer's sympathy to each imbued with character, sympathetically treated as to the death of Mercutio and the deaths of "noble" ' Tibal'da as to the suffering of parents of Romeo and Juliet, and the tragic death of young heroes. They are all, in our opinion, deserve love, everything they could love each other, but militant alienation, conventions, neutral attitudes are not allowed them to connect.
