Available on iTunes
"Graeme Murphy is renowned for his ability to create striking new versions of iconic ballets, and Romeo & Juliet is his most lavish vision yet. Traversing time and place, Murphy’s ballet follows Shakespeare's star-crossed young lovers, caught in a whirlwind of ancient hatreds. Youthful passion smoulders at its core, but Murphy also tackles the consequences of greed, war, and what happens to humanity when love dies. The strength and beauty of Prokofiev's music, the exquisite detail of the production, including costumes by renowned designer Akira Isogawa, and the superb performances, led by acclaimed Principal Artists Madeleine Eastoe and Kevin Jackson, together create a masterpiece of contemporary classical ballet."
