Petipa’s brilliant choreography and Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous score illuminate Shakespeare’s classic heartrending tale of young star-crossed lovers falling victim to family hatred. The ballet is performed with the awe-inspiring artistry of these Russian dancers, and enhanced with resplendent costumes and sets. Founder and legendary Bolshoi dancer Elena Radchenko has dedicated the company to preserving the national tradition of Russian ballet works, while also developing new talents throughout Russia. “A cut above many of its rivals.” (The Washington Post)
