Romeo and Juliet. Symphonic novel

  In the magnificent auditorium of the imperial theater, the famous work of Sergei Prokofiev will be performed by the Olympic Orchestra Symphony Orchestra. The most famous love story comes to life on a huge screen and the walls of a historic concert hall in a changing image of sand animation.

  For over four hundred years, the work “Romeo and Juliet” has been considered a true hymn of love, overcoming all obstacles in its path. To the music of the great S. Prokofiev, Daria Kotyuh visualized the temperamental images of the main characters, creating her own sand symphony. In every beat of the artist’s music and movement the trembling breath of the main dramatic idea.The performance, rich in picturesque possibilities, resembles ballet, but instead of dancers, hands and sand.

  The program premiered at the Hamburg Sand Animation Festival in 2015.

  Sand animation is an elegant and dynamic genre of fine art. The artist creates expressive images and their transformations right in front of the audience on the table illuminated from below with precise hand movements using sand.

  Art Studio "Wind":

The artist-director of sand animation is Daria Kotyukh;

The video director is Dmitry Ermolin.

    “... It can be said that such a combination of a live orchestra and sand drawings is an utterly delightful act. The artist managed to catch the mood, the very essence of the work, disturbing the thinnest strings of the soul. The sand itself embodies the temporality of everything that happens, sweeping, erasing the past and leaving a turn for the future. ”
