Event Details

Watch the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2017 premiere of Francesco Ventriglia’s Romeo & Juliet Live in Your Living Room.

A sunlit piazza, the candlelit corner of a noble ballroom, a moonlit balcony… when young lovers meet, the world is stilled… then changed forever.

Inspired by Franco Zeffirelli’s classic 1968 film, and set to Prokofiev’s instantly recognisable score, this interpretation is a hot-blooded, passionate re-telling of Shakespeare’s play, sure to resonate with lovers of dance, drama and pure romance. Renaissance Verona will come to life in all its vitality and splendour, from the blazing battles of the Capulets and Montagues, to the lovers’ heart-breaking youth and beauty, with exquisite costumes and sets by Academy Award-winner James Acheson.

These broadcasts are provided free of charge through Facebook Premiere.  Romeo & Juliet is only available in Australia and New Zealand.
