First love, vengeance and hate… the greatest love story ever told.
A fabulous production with 30 dancers of Romeo and Juliet by The Russian National Ballet Theatre is on its way to Murray Bridge Town Hall on October 22.
The Capulets are age old enemies of the Montagues and the desire between Romeo Montague and the beautiful Juliet Capulet is forbidden.
Sacrificing the approval of their families, the young lovers throw caution to the wind, and play a dangerous game of deception that ends in heart-breaking tragedy.
“Never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”
The story was one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays during his lifetime and is one of his most frequently performed.
It has not only inspired ballet’s greatest choreographers, but it has been the basis for a number of popular musicals and theatre works.
The seamless choreography by Evgeny Amosov, the taut fight scenes and festive street dances will leave you awe-inspired.
