The Italian Federico plays Romeo for the first time



Romeo and Juliet – the romantic story by Shakespeare accompanied by the music of Sergei Prokofiev and performed by The Czech National Ballet in The Music Theatre Karlín. Four times only in 2018, starting November 12.

The famous love story written by William Shakespeare inspired the great composer Sergei Prokofiev in the 1930s and the Czech choreographer Petr Zuska in 2013 – his neoclassical version shines on the stage of The Music Theatre Karlín and waits for your visit. The State Opera Orchestra, the Czech National Ballet dancers and young talents from the Ballet Preparatory School create an unforgettable atmosphere. For the first time Romeo will be played by the Italian dancer Federico Ievoli who will fall in love with his Juliet Magdaléna Matějková.

“Romeo has always been of my most favourite characters – I am delighted I have the opportunity to dance this part. Moreover, Magda is a real star, an experienced dancer, and I am learning a lot from her. It is hard to be a dancer and actor in one, to dance and to act at the same time so that Romeo is persuasive and believable. But I will give all I have in me so that the audience can enjoy the magic of the evening fully.” (Federico – Romeo)

“I am looking forward to our new Romeo very much. I sense that Federico will not only bring exceptional dance aesthetics to the stage but also lots of love. And I will share this love with him gladly!“ (Magdaléna – Juliet)

Don’t miss the love of Romeo and Juliet and come to Karlín! November 12 at 7pm for the first time.
