Ballet Cymru presents Romeo a Juliet
Best Large Scale Dance Production, Wales Theatre Awards
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 a 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 Theatre in Newport.
"Romeo a Juliet" 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.
