Ballet Cymru: Romeo & JulietSat 19 October 2019
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life
Critics’ Circle Award winning company Ballet Cymru present an extraordinary adaptation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece Romeo and Juliet.
Intense fighting, passionate duets and universal themes echo through dramatic and lyrical choreography. Exquisite costumes and extraordinary video projections create a world of danger and excitement where two young lovers are caught in an age old feud.
Romeo and Juliet is a dynamic and unique collaboration between 3 of Wales’ outstanding arts organisations; Ballet Cymru, Coreo Cymru (Creative Producer for Dance in Wales) and The Riverfront in Newport .
The production features costumes by Georg Meyer-Wiel, who studied at The Royal College of Art and has created costumes for some of the world’s leading companies, including Rambert Dance Company and Australian Dance Theatre.
“The formula is winning, deftly translating each sentence of the story into vivacious, easily decipherable dance sequences.” – Deborah Weiss (Dance Europe)
