National Dance Company: Romeo and Juliet

The National Dance Company returns to the Teatro Real with its first major ballet production since José Carlos Martínez took over the direction. Between days 16 Y 27 April will be offered 8 functions of this new version of the ballet designed and performed by the choreographer Goyo Montero. The music of Serguei Prokofiev will be performed in the pit by the Royal Theater Orchestra under the direction of maestro Koen Kessels. The new choreography combines technique and poetry to bring the characters of Shakespeare's drama to life.
With the participation on stage of the entire Company, He directed José Carlos Martínez, Aleix Mañé and Isaac Montllor will alternate in the leading roles, like Romeo, and Marina Jiménez and Kayoko Everhart in the skin of Julieta. From the pit, the Teatro Real Titular Orchestra will be under the command of maestro Koen Kessels to bring to life one of the best-known scores by Serguei Prokofiev.
Based on the drama by William Shakespeare, and without departing from the original argument, Montero makes a very personal version of the drama to delve into the psychological side of the characters, Among those who will take a special role is Queen Mab, symbol of fate and death, y Mercutio, character whose complexity “with its irony and contained drama, make it the most difficult to portray”.
El coreógrafo derrocha originalidad en este Romeo y Julieta en el que destaca la fuerza de las emociones combinando la dinámica de la partitura de Prokofiev con la expresividad y pasión de los bailarines. Durante el ballet se suceden escenas de grupo espectaculares, casi acrobáticas, combinadas con poéticos pasos a dos que nos recuerdan que el amor puede convertirse en una adicción.
