ROCKLAND — A captured-live high definition broadcast of Romeo and Juliet, performed by the Bolshoi Ballet in an encore broadcast from Moscow, will be presented on Sunday, March 29, at 1 p.m., at the Strand Theatre.
Despite each of their families being merciless enemies, Romeo and Juliet are deeply in love. The rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues will cost Mercutio’s life, causing Romeo a desire of vengeance for the loss of his friend.
“The star-crossed lovers’ tragic fate inspired Prokofiev’s remarkable cinematic score, from the delicate theme of Juliet to the ominous Dance of the Knights,” said the Strand, in a news release. “Bolshoi stars Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov wholly embody the two eternal lovers in Alexei Ratmansky’s stunning evocation of love at first sight.”
Running time: 3 hours, including two intermissions.
Tickets are $15/Adults, $10/Students 18 and under, and college students with ID.
The Strand Theatre is located at 345 Main Street in Rockland.
