Ballet BC is thrilled to have this iconic story expertly crafted by French choreographer Medhi Walerski, one of the most original contemporary voices in international dance today. Set to Sergei Prokofiev’s original score, this full-length commission showcases Walerski's signature style that brings together dazzling landscapes woven with poetic, unpredictable, and complex imagery.
A collaboration between Dutch set and lighting designer Theun Mosk, an international team of collaborators, and the Arts Umbrella Graduate Dance Program, Ballet BC’s Romeo and Juliet will be a fresh and thought-provoking retelling of this timeless classic.
