Graeme Murphy is renowned for his ability to create striking new versions of iconic ballets, and Romeo and Juliet is his most lavish vision yet. He sets this universal love story outside of place and time and the spectacular production roams over multiple locations vividly realised by set designer Gerard Manion and matched by boldly imaginative costumes from fashion designer Akira Isogawa.
The exquisite detail of the production and the nuanced performances, led by acclaimed Principal Artists Madeleine Eastoe and Kevin Jackson, craft a Romeo and Juliet that truly captures the implacable hate of the rival families, the joy and tenderness of first love and the poignancy of its end.
