Barcelona becomes a different city in the wintertime. No more roof terrace barbecues or parties in the park. As the winter creeps up on us, it’s time to start figuring out new ways to spend the long evenings. Make the most of the vast array of culture this city has to offer, starting with a trip to one of its best arts venues; L’Auditori. This November, L’Auditori will present a magnificent interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most popular works, the illustrious Romeo and Juliet. No matter how many times the story is relived, through book, film or theatre, it never gets old and this ballet is sure to give another perspective on this old classic.
Composed by Prokofiev in 1935, the ballet was badly received due to its controversial happy ending. Having revised his original version, the play first premiered in 1938, to a much more receptive audience. The combination of dance and music guides us through the journey of the most famous lovers of all time and their tragic plight of forbidden love. The music from Adagio de Samuel is the perfect accompaniment to the elegance of the dancers. This performance is sure to warm your heart and banish your winter blues.
