Born in 1963 in Moscow, Vladimir Moiseyev is a member of one of the most distinguished choreographic families in Russia. In 1981 he graduated from the Moscow State Academy of choreography and joined the company of the State Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Russia. Since 1991 he has been a leading character solo dancer at the Bolshoi Theatre.
From 1988 to 1992 he studied at the Russian Academy of Theatrical Arts, from which he graduated as a producer-choreographer and in 1996, he was awarded the title "Honored Artist of Russia." In 2001, he co-founded the "Russian National Ballet Theatre," where he stages his versions of famous classical and modern ballet interpretations including the performance of Romeo and Juliet to be performed in Banderas Bay this February.
Shakespeare's heartbreaking love story is brought to life with a troupe of 50 dancers by Moiseyev's inventive choreography and sumptuous costumes and sets which transport you to Renaissance Verona. From the breathtaking sword-fights of the Capulets and Montagues to the spellbinding romance of Romeo and Juliet's balcony scene, Moiseyev's Romeo and Juliet blazes with passion.
Romeo and Juliet is a ballet by Sergei Prokofiev based on Shakespeare's tragic love story. Prokofiev composed the music in 1935 or 1936 for the Kirov Ballet. The incredible ballet score has inspired many great choreographers to try their hand at Shakespeare's story. Many people believe that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest ballet score ever written.
