A sunlit piazza, the candlelit corner of a noble ballroom, a moonlit balcony… when young lovers meet, the world is stilled… then changed forever.

Artistic Director and choreographer Francesco Ventriglia creates a new version of the world’s greatest love story, especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet: the company’s first new production of Romeo and Juliet since 2003. Inspired by Franco Zeffirelli’s classic 1968 film, this will be a hot-blooded, passionate re-telling of Shakespeare’s play that is sure to resonate with lovers of dance, drama and pure romance.

Academy Award winning designer James Acheson (The Last Emperor, Dangerous Liaisons, Restoration) will bring Renaissance Verona to life in all its vitality and splendour, from the blazing battles of the Capulets and Montagues to the lovers’ heart-breaking youth and beauty.

Prokofiev’s instantly recognisable score will be performed live in Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland and Dunedin; a specially-made recording will accompany performances in other centres.

In a first for the RNZB, and thanks to Auckland Live, we are delighted to offer a live audio description of Romeo and Juliet  for blind and visually impaired patrons at the performance on Sunday 3 September.

The Ryman Healthcare Season of Romeo and Juliet is a Partner Event of Christchurch Arts Festival.

Conductor:  Hamish McKeich
