Romeo and Juliet
Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
So opens Romeo and Juliet, perhaps Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy and a timeless warning to grudge-bearing elders and impetuous youth alike. The Capulets and the Montagues have been battling for generations, but a chance encounter and instant connection between their scions, Romeo and Juliet, leads to reconciliation under the most tragic circumstances possible. After the famous balcony scene, an unforgettable vignette that descends into an argument about the meaning of the word “wherefore,” the lovers struggle against the fate their families have drawn for them, only to fall victim to their adolescent temerity.
Every insult, sword fight, and stolen kiss comes sonically to life in a score by Sergei Prokofiev, a composer praised for his emotionally vivid compositions. Ballet San Antonio matches Profokiev’s emotive prowess with choreography from dance icon Ben Stevenson, an award-winning artist who has served as Artistic Director of the National Ballet of Washington, D.C., the Chicago Ballet, the Houston Ballet, and, currently, the Texas Ballet Theater.
Ballet San Antonio
Ballet San Antonio, resident ballet company of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, is a part of the city's cultural landscape. Since 2012, the company has undergone a tremendous creative metamorphosis. Artistic Director Gabriel Zertuche not only began choreographing new works for the company, he also expanded the repertoire to include grand, full-length ballets such as Cinderella, Dracula, and The Firebird. A new partnership with the George Balanchine Trust gave Ballet San Antonio the rights to the legendary choreographer's Donizetti Variations, and an expanded collaboration with the San Antonio Symphony brings the rich sound of a full orchestra to multiple season productions.
