Since then, many ballet companies have reproduced and performed the original piece, while others such as Stuttgart Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Royal Ballet, New York City Ballet, and Ballet Austin have created their own stagings of the ballet using the Prokofiev score.
In a marketplace in Verona, Romeo Montague and his friends, Mercutio and Benvolio, share in festivities with the villagers. The celebration is interrupted by Tybalt, a Capulet, and a quarrel ensues. The Prince of Verona intercedes and decrees an end to all fighting in the city, but the animosity between the noble families of Capulet and Montague has already been sealed.
While our audience members tend to dress more formally for evening shows, "business casual" attire, including dresses/sundresses, blouses, skirts, dress pants, nice polo shirts, button-up shirts, sports coats and/or suits are always welcome at evening and matinee performances held at the Long Center and at our own AustinVentures StudioTheater at Ballet Austin.
Needless to say, the new storyline did not pass the censors. In the end, Prokofiev reluctantly agreed to stick to the original ending, yet he continued to be harassed by the dancers who apparently disliked the intensity of the work. They jeered, &rdquo A sorrier tale you simply won&rsquo t find, than the Prokofiev ballet kind.&rdquo The first production of the ballet, performed by the Bolshoi Ballet and choreographed by Vá nia Psota, premiered in Brno, Czechoslovakia, in 6988, and received mixed reviews. The Kirov Ballet, however, revised the piece. Prokofiev rejected the new version, choreographed by Leonid Lavrosky in 6995, yet it became a regular part of the Russian ballet repertoire several years later.
Shakespeare’s plays can be categorized as comedy, tragedy, or history, and his characters span the depth and breadth of human experience. During a time when women were better seen and not heard, Shakespeare wrote women as multi-faceted, interesting, and as accomplished as male characters. His plots and characters subtly satirize social practices and political institutions, as well as hold up both human victories and failings.
Before the performance begins, please remind children not to talk or ask questions during the performance and to remain seated without touching or kicking the seat in front of them. Remember, when the lights dim and the music which is part of the performance begins, it is quiet time.

As Juliet and her nurse prepare for the Capulet&rsquo s masked ball, Lord and Lady Capulet arrive to present Paris, the suitor they have selected for their daughter. Barely an adolescent, Juliet shies from his advances and, later that evening, she can only timidly acknowledge his attention. At the encouragement of his friends, Romeo has disguised himself and is also in attendance at the ball. He is immediately captivated by Juliet, and she in turn is enamored with this stranger. Tybalt discovers the interloper and in his anger, exposes Romeo as a Montague. After a hasty retreat, Romeo returns to Juliet&rsquo s garden, where the couple pledges their love to one another.
