 The Stuttgart Ballet will celebrate the 50th anniversary of John Cranko’s "Romeo and Juliet"  with a star-studded gala performance on Dec. 2. Many former stars of the company will perform, among them four dancers from the original cast in 1962: Marcia Haydée (former Juliet) as Juliet’s nurse, Ray Barra (former Romeo) as Duke of Verona, Egon Madsen (former Paris) as Lorenzo and Georgette Tsinguirides, former Gypsy and, at 84 years of age, still a Gypsy. Also appearing: Birgit Keil as Lady Capulet, Melinda Witham as Lady Montague, Vladimir Klos as Lord Capulet, Robert Conn as Lord Montague, Yseult Lendvai and Sonia Santiago as Gypsies and Julia Krämer as Rosalind. The principal roles will be danced by Alicia Amatriain and Friedemann Vogel, with Marijn Rademaker, Filip Barankiewicz, Alexander Jones and Jason Reilly in further roles.
On the morning of the same day there will be a ballet talk with Marcia Haydée, Birgit Keil, Georgette Tsinguirides, Ray Barra, Vladimir Klos, Jürgen Rose and Reid Anderson about Cranko’s "Romeo and Juliet" which premiered in 1958 in Venice and in a revised version in Stuttgart on December 2nd, 1962.
