Romeo + Juliet
The esteemed company from British Columbia premiered its new production of the classic tale to rave reviews in 2018, and The Soraya will proudly launch the first U.S. tour of the lauded production. The timeless tale of two star-crossed lovers features new choreography by Medhi Walerski, one of the most innovative dance makers today. It is set to the well-known 1938 score by composer Sergei Prokofiev. Walerski explains the inspiration for his new choreography: “Just what Prokofiev wrote, it’s genius and it’s so profound and it’s so beautiful. It’s some-thing that really reaches your heart and soul, deeply.”
In a first for Ballet BC, the new full-length work delves into a thought-provoking retelling of the classic that resonates today, capturing audiences with its deeply human story and enduring themes of love and family.
