The spectacular collaboration between Neglia Ballet and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra continues next Friday, April 4, with a 1795599_10152237053764259_1762733560_nproduction of Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet at Shea’s Performing Arts Center, under the musical direction of Bradley Thachuk. This is a rare experience indeed: a top-flight production of a beloved ballet, danced to live music performed by a professional orchestra, in a beautiful theater.

Led by the troupe’s artistic director, Sergio Neglia, as Romeo, the dancers also include Silvina Vaccarelli as Juliet, Jace Coronado as Mercutio, Mindaugas Bauztys as Tybalt, Neglia Heidi Halt as Lady Capulet, Paul Mockavak as Lord Capulet, Suzanne Evans as the Nurse, and Rorey Fraser as Paris.

Supporting roles are played by local dancers and students in Neglia’s conservatory. Fraser, 15, has been a student at the conservatory for nine years, and Paris is his first major role.
