The Ankara State Opera and Ballet (ADOB) will bring the ballet performance of the great love story “Romeo and Juliet,” adapted from William Shakespeare’s work, to the stage. The ballet will be accompanied by the music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky.

The world-famous love story of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two families who are enemies but are connected to each other with great love, will be presented with the magical rhythm of the ballet on April 4 at the Opera Stage.

Speaking to state-run Anadolu Agency, ADOB director Volkan Ersoy, one of the choreographers of the work, said ADOB worked hard with Armağan Davran for the choreography.

“Seventeen years ago, I and Davran were performing in turns in another version of Romeo and Juliette with the music of Sergey Prokofyev. Now we made a different version of the same work. This is the 10th ballet work we made together,” he said.

Stating that many people were familiar with Prokofyev’s Romeo and Juliet and they wanted to present something different, Ersoy said: “We listened to all of Tchaikovsky’s music for six-seven months including all symphonies, quartets and ballets. Then we created the libretto and first made the music choreography. This work is a first; there is nothing similar in the world.”

Ersoy said that the world premiere of the ballet was made in 2016 by the İzmir State Opera and Ballet and then was included in the Antalya State Opera and Ballet repertoire in 2016-2017 art season, adding that it would be staged in Ankara this season.

He said that the studio work of the ballet was finished in three-four months. The music were listened by Tolga Taviş, he said. “The audience will leave the venue with lots of emotions. We also have a special surprise in the final act. I have never seen a viewer who did not cry while watching it,” he added.
