Marinsky Ballet Performs Romeo and Juliet this Week
Romeo and Juliet will be danced by the Marinsky Ballet on November one and two at the Guangzhou Opera House.

Romeo and Juliet  will be danced by the Marinsky Ballet on November 1 and  2  at the Guangzhou Opera House.

The Mariinsky Ballet is closely linked with the history and  development of Russian choreographic art, which began more than two and a half centuries ago. Foreign dance masters played an important role in the establishment and evolution of Russian ballet. At the end of the 18th century, Franz Hilverding, Gasparo Angiolini, Giuseppe Canziani and Charles le Picq were all working in St Petersburg. As far back as the 1790’s, however, the first Russian ballet teacher, Ivan Valberkh, came to the fore. The main sphere of his activities was in a small mime ballet company. He sought to make his productions rich in subject matter and to create recognizable, lifelike images.
