Overview

Choreography: Stanton Welch AM  |  Music: Sergey Prokofiev

Stanton Welch’s Romeo and Juliet made its world premiere at Houston Ballet in 2015 and has since traveled as far as Australia. The exquisite production is a brilliantly imagined interpretation of the world’s most famous love story. Set to Prokofiev’s breathtaking score, Welch’s ballet weaves the poignant tale of the star-crossed pair exquisitely. With lavish sets and costumes by acclaimed Italian designer Roberta Guidi di Bagno, the production pays tribute to Italian Renaissance. The theme is classic and the choreography fresh. The Bard himself would surely approve.
