About this event

Event info

Lichfield Festival favourites, Ballet Cymru, return with their incredible production of Romeo a Juliet (Romeo & Juliet), winner of Best Large Scale Dance Production at the Wales Theatre Awards.

‘But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun’

Critics’ Circle Award winning company, Ballet Cymru, present an extraordinary adaptation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece Romeo a Juliet. Intense fighting, passionate duets and universal themes echo through dramatic and lyrical choreography.

Exquisite costumes, alongside Prokofiev’s extraordinary score, create a world of danger and excitement where two young lovers are caught in an age-old feud.

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

Romeo & Juliet features choreography from Company Directors Darius James OBE and Amy Doughty, and costumes by Georg Meyer-Wiel who has created costumes for some of the world’s leading companies including Rambert Dance Company and Australian Dance Theatre.
