Romeo and Juliet

When: April 26-28 2013

Romeo and Juliet may be one of the most ubiquitous works of all time, but there’s a reason: “This is one of the most basic stories about humanity that people can relate to,” Nashville Ballet artistic director Paul Vasterling told the Scene in 2004, prior to the well-received premiere of his original rendition of the Shakespeare classic. The staging features ornate period sets and costumes, doing its best to transport audiences to 16th century “fair Verona.” Throw in Nashville Ballet’s talented dancers, action-packed fight scenes and a masterful score written by Sergei Prokofiev and performed live by the Nashville Symphony, and you’ve got a promising recipe for a great night of ballet.
