What’s more heart-wrenching than a couple of star-crossed lovers with warring families? Well, star-crossed lovers in tights, of course. The world-famous Moscow City Ballet and Orchestra will be taking to the Dubai Opera stage to perform Shakespeare classic Romeo and Juliet, for three performances in April. Coming from acclaimed Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev and staged by Victor Smirnov Golovanov (who also founded the Moscow City Ballet), this production is set in Renaissance Italy. Golovanov’s powerful interpretation combined with Prokofiev’s emotive score make for a truly dazzling stage.
