Featuring the National Arts Centre Orchestra 

Few of Shakespeare’s works have translated so well to the beautiful language of ballet as Romeo and Juliet. Choreographed by celebrated Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, this particular version was commissioned by The National Ballet of Canada’s Artistic Director Karen Kain in 2011 to celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary. Deftly attuned to highlighting the narrative’s dramatic moments and the intimacy of the star-crossed romance, Ratmansky creates a dance drama with electrifying fight sequences and an unforgettable balcony pas-de-deux. This larger than life, sublimely danced production manifests the simplicity of Renaissance art through its geometric sets and period costumes.
