From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life

Intense fighting, passionate duets and universal themes echo through dramatic and lyrical choreography. Exquisite costumes and extraordinary video projections create a world of danger and excitement where two young lovers are caught in an age old feud.
“Romeo a Juliet” is a dynamic and unique collaboration between 3 of Wales’ outstanding arts organisations, Ballet Cymru, Coreo Cymru (Creative Producer for Dance in Wales www.coreocymru.com) and The Riverfront Theatre in Newport (www.newport.co.uk/riverfront)
"Romeo a Juliet" features costumes by Georg Meyer-Wiel (www.meyerwiel.com) 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.
