The original version of the ballet Romeo and Juliet by Sergei Prokofiev is based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Music from the ballet was extracted by Prokofiev as three suites for orchestra and as a piano work. In this film Romeo and Juliet, also inspired by Shakespeare, tensions run high in the choir, and the visual imagery is fluid and strong, just like the music. Thierry Malandain’s choreography features arabesques, pirouettes, and jumps constantly broken and redistributed in an urgent motion. The music of this performance is composed by Hector Berlioz. Performers are part of the Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo and the performance took place at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre in Spain.
