Ballet Cymru To Present Romeo a Juliet in Newport

Critics’ Circle Award winning company, Ballet Cymru, will present an adaptation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece Romeo and Juliet at Newport’s Riverfront Theatre from May 20-31, 2019.

Romeo a Juliet is a dynamic and unique collaboration between three of Wales’ outstanding arts organisations, Ballet Cymru, Coreo Cymru (Creative Producer for Dance in Wales) and The Riverfront.

Intense fighting, passionate duets and universal themes will echo through dramatic and lyrical choreography. At the same time, exquisite costumes and extraordinary video projections will create a world of danger and excitement where two young lovers are caught in an age-old feud.

The production will feature costumes by Georg Meyer-Wiel who studied at The Royal College of Art and has created costumes for some of the world’s leading companies, including Rambert Dance Company and Australian Dance Theatre.
