Romeo & Juliet

Romeo & Juliet

Romeo & Juliet

Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy is given a beautiful and thought-provoking telling in this masterpiece of dance and drama. The splendour of sixteenth-century Verona is recreated by the magnificent sets and costumes of Toer van Schayk in this full-length ballet that demands the most of a dancer’s personal capacity to create a role.​

“The famous story of the star-crossed lovers is made crystal clear with passionate dance vocabulary that avoids mime and propels the fated plot forward with faced-paced fencing, a dramatic masquerade ensemble dance and satisfyingly romantic love at first sight, balcony and bedroom scenes.” - Salena Kitteringham, The Edmonton Journal, Jan 22/14
