Christopher Hampson's staging of Romeo & Juliet was
first performed by the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2003 and
following a hugely successful UK tour, was nominated for a Laurence
Olivier Award for Best Production in 2005.
With their families locked in a bitter feud, Romeo and Juliet's
fate is doomed. While they will do anything to be together, their
families will do anything to keep them apart.
Set to Sergei Prokofiev's ravishing score, this highly dramatic
and visually stunning production is inspired by the look of
Fellini's La Dolce Vita and Baz Luhrmann's film version of
this Shakespearean masterpiece.
Featuring a rich and bloody colour palette by designer Tracy
Grant Lord, join the lovers as they battle against their families
in order to follow their hearts, only to have their happiness
