A first for Ballet BC's repertoire, Shakespeare's classic Romeo and Juliet has inspired many an artist with its tragic tale of "star-crossed lovers." Compelling in its timelessness, the work captures audiences with its deeply human story and enduring themes of love, fate and family. Reflecting on the divisions that persist in today's world, Ballet BC will offer a fresh and thought-provoking retelling of the classic that profoundly resonates today.

Romeo and Juliet
Medhi Walerski
Ballet BC is thrilled to have this iconic story expertly crafted by Medhi Walerski, one of the most original voices in international dance today. Set to Sergei Prokofiev's original score, this full-length commission showcases Walerski's signature style that brings together dazzling landscapes woven with poetic, unpredictable and complex imagery. Walerski brings a contemporary familiarity to the story of Romeo and Juliet—"the vision of love that Shakespeare gave us in this master work is very precious. It is like holding a jewel in your hand that needs to be protected."
