This ballet masterfully tells Shakespeare’s tale of love, anguish and revenge. While remaining true to the original story, Bengt Jörgen has focused on principal scenes and characters in order to create a clear and emotionally driven journey. Jörgen’s choreography follows the development of its lead characters, Romeo and Juliet and mirrors the progression of their fated relationship.
Ballet Jörgen Canada’s interpretation of this timeless classic has won international recognition and critical acclaim. It has been showcased in major cities and communities across Canada, the United States,China, and Hong Kong. The beautifully minimalist, flexible sets designed by Glenn Davidson, are easily integrated into the choreography and moved fluidly from scene to scene. Renaissance Italy comes to life in a riot of colour with costumes by Gary Dahms.
