Romeo & Juliet - The Choice

Frederic recently finished a series of performances of his ground-breaking ballet production. Working again with his collaborator, choreographer Sandra Shih Parks, and a 12-member ballet troupe, they performed the complete ballet in the piano-score version in Wallingford and Fairfield, CT. Each time, the audience was given the choice of 2 endings, one tragic, one hopeful, both composed by Prokofiev. This unique production, premiered in 2018, is the only opportunity for audiences to hear the ballet in its originally conceived form - with the hopeful ending played on the piano.
