Romeo and Juliet

Kenneth MacMillan

Teatro alla Scala Production

 

From 10 to 23 October 2014

Running Time: 2 hours 50 minutes intermissions included

Notes on the performancesOpen 
Kenneth MacMillan approaches the Shakespearian tale of Verona’s legendry lovers with profound attention to human relations, lyricism and psychological tension, without forgetting moments of humour, through the dynamics and emotions of this ballet d’action which are fully present in Prokofiev’s music. It has been part of La Scala’s repertoire for many years, but in 2010 Romeo and Juliet found a new guise, with the scenography of Mauro Carosi and Odette Nicoletti’s costumes. Walls and bricks bring to mind Verona’s Teatro Romano, with all of its medieval contaminations; the famous balcony is positioned on a tower, the base of which becomes Juliet’s bed; in the crypt that same balcony is transformed into the lovers’ tomb. An expressive set design that interacts fully with MacMillan’s choreography, who demands geometric and precise spaces, that in turn blend consistently with the medieval-renaissance costumes.
