Romeo and Juliet
Australian choreographer 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. Recorded live at the Arts Centre in Melbourne, Murphy’s production roams over different locations and time periods – Renaissance Verona, Japan, an Indian bazaar, the desert – each vividly realized through exquisite sets and boldly imaginative costumes. Led by acclaimed principal artists Madeleine Eastoe and Kevin Jackson, the ballet captures the implacable hate of the rival families, the joy and tenderness of first love and the poignancy of its end.
