Romeo and Juliet Ekaterina Maximova and Vladimir Vasiliev with the Bolshoi Ballet Choreography by Lavrovsky, Music by Prokofiev Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed young lovers has inspired countless variations, including successful permutations in dance, opera, concert music, film and musical theater. As a ballet, set to one of Prokofiev’s greatest scores, it has become a repertoire favorite. It is, however, the Kirov Ballet of Leningrad and Moscow’s Bolshoi that can claim an authentic relationship to this dance masterpiece. Here is a landmark performance, brilliantly illuminated by the performances of Maximova and Vasiliev. Maximova is one of the few ballerinas who can capture the ebullience of a thirteen-year-old. Her Juliet is an astonishing accomplishment, beautifully danced and emotionally heartrending. Equally superb is Vasiliev as her Romeo, who looks, acts and dances the part to perfection.
