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 a 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 (The Dance Creative Producer for 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.
But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Running time: approx. 2 hours, including interval.
