Romeo and Juliet

World-renowned dance star Jiří Bubeníček has choreographed the ballet "Romeo and Juliet" in collaboration with the Rijeka Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Croatian and Italian dramas of the Rijeka National Theatre. The concept and dramaturgy were conceived in partnership with his wife Nadina Cojocaru, who is also responsible for the costume design. Behind them lies an extensive period of research, a plethora of ideas and thoughts, and a significant investment of energy into artistic creations that will captivate the audience from every angle of the stage. With a polished dance, musical, and theatrical interpretation, they will seamlessly immerse the audience into the world of feuding families' hatred and the love of the most enamored couple in history.
