Viorel Balan’s sister Natalia starred as Juliet in the World Tour that finished in Quebec City on January 3 at the Grand Théâtre.

The Russian group made its first stop here since its creation almost twenty-five years ago to perform Shakespeare’s classic play Romeo and Juliet as interpreted by Sergei Prokofiev on January 4. Viorel Balan, the development director of the Moscow Ballet, was in Quebec City on December 14 to organize the upcoming performance and discussed the production with QCT reporter Marie White.
