ROMEO & JULIET
Passionate dancing, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and stunning set and costume designs bring Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed lovers brilliantly to life. Set to the hauntingly beautiful Prokofiev score, Helgi Tomasson’s Romeo & Juliet transports you from the streets of Renaissance Verona to the grandeur of the Capulet’s ballroom, from the strife of warring families to the flush of first love and its tragic end. Rapturously sensual and deeply moving, Romeo & Juliet offers a profound emotional experience.
