La Scala Ballet: Romeo and Juliet
La Scala étoile Roberto Bolle and special guest artist Misty Copeland of the American Ballet Theatre, dance together for the first time. Kenneth MacMillan’s classic, set to the immortal notes of Sergei Prokofiev, has been in La Scala’s repertoire for many years now, and has seen some unforgettable and passionate performers alternating the roles. MacMillan deals with the matter paying great attention to human relations, lyricism and psychological tension, without neglecting moments of humour, through the dynamics and the emotions of ballet d’action. The specialist in the romantic repertoire Patrick Fournillier, will grace the podium. Captured live from La Scala, Milan, 15 Jan 2017.
Screening as part to the 2016/17 Palace Opera & Ballet cinema season
