                                        Brief description

Performance, born on the stage of Azerbaijan State Academic theatre of opera and ballet, - is stage director’s view over happening in modern world. Brutal wars took away lives of hundreds and thousands Romeo’s and Juliette’s for the past decades. Every era has its own jokers that make everyone laugh but by the will of fate they turn into dictators and nation obeys their power without a question. 

House of Montague and House of Capulet spawned and lead meaningless feud that destroy their children. Stop! Look around! Remember your children! Lives of your grandchildren and great grandchildren are in your hands!

First of all, we see defying art, histrionic and masterly that comes from tragedy of her own life.

We see history of human in this work written in 1928 than music, that “breathes” and emerges. Constant fight of intellect and sensuality, mind and passion hide this inner lava.

Spirit of France in the time between two wars is expressed with its carelessness, “light-mindedness” and pitched decadence. Actors create factitious, false, inspired and taken from other cultures symbols and values of past time and human helplessness as in period of Borocco…
