LA CROSSE, Wis. – The internationally-acclaimed Moscow Festival Ballet will present Romeo and Juliet in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17.
This production of Romeo and Juliet is William Shakespeare’s timeless story of two star-crossed lovers set to Tchaikovsky’s brilliant score.
One of Russia’s premiere ballet companies, the Moscow Festival Ballet is under the artistic direction of Sergei Radchenko. Radchenko served with the Bolshoi Ballet for 25 years and founded the Moscow Festival Ballet in 1989.
The company will also perform Chopiniana, a ballet choreographed to piano works by Frederic Chopin.
This performance is classical ballet at its finest. It is part of Viterbo’s Bright Star Series and is co-sponsored by Wisconsin Public Radio and Candlewood Suites and by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
