ATHENS, Ga. -- The State Ballet Theatre of Russia is set to visit the University of Georgia.

The ballet company is to present two performances of "Romeo and Juliet" on Jan. 17 and 18. The ballet will feature classic Russian choreography set to the music of composer Sergei Prokofiev.

The State Ballet Theatre of Russia is the touring name of the Voronezh State Theatre of Opera and Ballet, which was established in 1961. It has more than 50 dancers and has toured extensively throughout the world. It made its American debut during the 2006-2007 season.

Lisa Fusillo, head of the UGA department of dance, will give a pre-concert lecture 45 minutes prior to each "Romeo and Juliet" performance.
