Graeme Murphy's Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is perhaps the greatest love story ever told – but it hasn’t been told by one of Australia’s greatest storytellers…until now. Graeme Murphy (Swan Lake, Nutcracker) adds another ballet classic to his list of audacious reinventions with this much-anticipated creation for The Australian Ballet. Traversing time and place, Murphy’s ballet follows ‘a feisty girl and a feisty boy who are willing to take a stand for their love.’ Young passion smoulders at its core, but Murphy also tackles the consequences of greed, war, and what happens to humanity when love dies. Of course, a grand story demands grand surrounds, and who better to create the costumes than Australian fashion luminary Akira Isogawa. Romeo & Juliet is a masterpiece from first blush to final devastation.
