“Living people can dance, the dying cannot”, Prokofiev wrote to explain the
problems he faced when writing music for the ballet Romeo and Juliet. His
original score was rejected as ‘undanceable’ by the Bolshoy Theatre and his
initial scheme for a happy ending for the lovers was, fortunately, vetoed. The
revised score, however, proved a masterpiece of expressive beauty and drama,
with melting love music and huge bravura, and it remains one of the most loved
ballet scores of the twentieth century. Andrew Mogrelia has had a varied career of concerts, recording and
work with major dance companies. He has worked with the English
National, Dutch National, Finnish National, Norwegian National
ballets, Netherlands Dance Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet,
Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theater.
