Immerse yourself in a world of “transcendent beauty and sumptuous intentions as well as dark and violent impulse” (Contra Costa Times) with Helgi Tomasson’s bravura interpretation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this passionate retelling of the Bard’s greatest tragedy has packed houses around the world. “Tomasson lifts Shakespeare’s complex and familiar language off the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography that is visceral, fresh, and ultimately sublime.” (Huffington Post)
