INFO: Visiting Australia for the first time, leading US Company Houston Ballet presents its hit production of Stanton Welch’s Romeo and Juliet as part of The Australian Ballet’s 2016 season. Following its world premiere in 2015, this vibrant and sensual retelling of the famous love story makes its international debut with an exclusive season at Arts Centre Melbourne from 20 June–9 July 2016.
Romeo and Juliet was created by the Melbourne-born Artistic Director of Houston Ballet, Stanton Welch AM, who is concurrently a Resident Choreographer of The Australian Ballet. Accompanied by Sergei Prokofiev’s heartrending score, Welch’s traditional production is faithful to the Shakespearean story, brimming with swordplay, bawdy humour, and tragic love. Internationally acclaimed designer Roberta Guidi di Bagno sets a romantic scene with lavish sets and costumes inspired by Renaissance Italy.
