Ballet BC presents Romeo + Juliet - Choreography by Medhi Walerski
In response to unprecedented demand and sold out performances for the world premiere, Ballet BC returns to this iconic story set to Sergei Prokofiev’s stunning score. Artfully crafted by Medhi Walerski, an original voice in international dance, his innovative retelling of the full-length classic brings together dazzling scenes woven with unpredictable and complex imagery. Along with an evocative set and lighting design by Dutch designer Theun Mosk, Walerski conjures a thought-provoking and contemporary approach to Romeo + Juliet.
Walerski shares, “Creating Romeo + Juliet has been one of the greatest highlights in my choreographic development. It is with great pride that I will see it return to the stage, especially now that I have the privilege to build a deeper relationship with the company. I cannot wait for the story of star-crossed lovers to come to life again and tour internationally.”
