Fall in love this winter with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s world premiere of Romeo and Juliet.
The timeless love story that needs no introduction will come to life on stage this August and September, curated by Italian choreographer Francesco Ventriglia. This beautiful reimagining of a Shakespearean classic has been created especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and will tour the country this winter, delighting Kiwi audiences.
From the arrangements to the costumes – designed by Academy Award-winning designer James Acheson – the audience will be transported to gorgeous Renaissance Verona.
Prokofiev’s passionate score will be performed live in Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland and Dunedin; a specially-made recording will accompany performances in other centres. Sure to be the highlight of the 2017 arts calendar this is a production not to be missed.
