The forever romance, the hundred year classic, the most heart-warming dancing you will see this year. After Swan Lake’s success in touring Australia last year, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is returning to RPAC with the world's greatest classic ballet Romeo and Juliet.
The seamless choreography of Evgeny Amosov is based on the Prokofiev ballet in three Acts with classical music. The Russian National Ballet Theatre will draw the audience into this tragic love story. 'For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo' William Shakespeare.
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. This dramatic ballet stays loyal to Shakespeare's original tragic ending. The romantic pas de deux, taut fight scenes and the festive street dances will leave you awe-inspired.
