La Crosse, WI – 02/26/18 – Weber Center for the Performing Arts announces that tickets are on sale now for the Stage on Screen broadcast of Romeo and Juliet, which will be shown Sunday, March 18, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the Lyche Theatre at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
In Verona, Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love while their respective families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are caught in a bitter rivalry. Their efforts to resist their feuding families end in a heart-wrenching tragedy.
Alexei Ratmansky, former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet, stages the company’s premiere of his production with dramatic urgency and a fresh re-telling of Shakespeare’s beloved classic. His brilliant and detailed adaptation, set to Prokofiev’s romantic and cinematic score, reignites the story of literature’s most celebrated star-crossed lovers like no other classical ballet choreographer today.
The performers are the Bolshoi Principals, Soloists, and Corps de Ballet.
Tickets are $15 for adults or $8 for students/youth and may be purchased over the phone or at www.webercenterarts.org. For questions or tickets, please call the box office at 608-784-9292 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
