Carmen Suite is a one-act ballet created in 1967 by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso, on music written by Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin. The music, taken from the opera Carmen by Georges Bizet, is not a 19th-century pastiche but rather “a creative meeting of the minds,” as Shchedrin put it, with Bizet’s  melodies reclothed in a variety of fresh instrumental colors (including the frequent use of percussion), set to new rhythms and often phrased with a great deal of sly wit. Russian National Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet is based on the classic by William Shakespeare. It was choreographed by Elena Radchenko to Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture” and Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74.
