Within the cultural, entertainment and sport events of the International Specialized Exhibition EXPO 2017, between June 16 and July 4 the «Romeo and Juliet» musical will be presented at the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation.
It is based on the romantic story of the tragic love of young Romeo and Juliet, created more than four centuries ago by the greatest English writer William Shakespeare. The author of the music and lyrics is Gérard Presgurvic. Since its premiere in Paris on January 19, 2001 the musical has been performed in French, Dutch, English, German, Italian, Hungarian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, Russian, and Hebrew.
The famous story tells us that man was created not for enmity and hatred, but for love, which calls for peace. Romeo and Juliet not only rebelled against old views and attitudes, they gave an example of a new life. They are not divided by enmity, they are united by love. This love is born from the admiration of beauty, from the belief in the greatness of man and the desire to share with him the joy of life.
Differences from Shakespeare's plot include the nature of the lovers' deaths is different, depending on the production. New characters such as Death and the Poet appear for dramatic effect.
The performance in Kazakh will be presented by the talented artists of the «Astana Musical» theater, each performance of which brings joy to the residents and guests of the capital.
