First love, age-old hate: with its primal passions and timeless themes, Romeo and Juliet has inspired ballet’s greatest choreographers. Now, for the first time, Stanton Welch brings his acclaimed production to Australia.
Artistic Director of Houston Ballet and Resident Choreographer of The Australian Ballet, Welch is a master of story and spectacle. His Romeo and Juliet is a traditional production to Prokofiev’s heart-rending music, with drama at its core. Its swordplay, bawdy humour, romance and tragedy unfold in a stunningly rich design inspired by Renaissance Italy.
Houston Ballet, one of the USA’s top companies, is renowned both for its technical precision and its artistry. Welch’s emotionally charged, sensual choreography will show them at their finest.
A rare opportunity to see this renowned company take on ballet’s greatest love story.
