Romeo & Juliet starring Grand Rapids Ballet | Nov 4 & 5, 2016 | Fri 8pm. Sat 2pm & 8pm
Commissioned by Grand Rapids Ballet, Mario Radacovsky’s innovative interpretation of the iconic Shakespeare tale focuses on the two lovers’ struggle with the social barrier that restricted and insulated them from childhood, and how it was broken for love.
This passionate ballet production contrasts concepts of duality through light and dark and a dramatic simplicity of sets as well as costumes splashed with color. Prokofiev’s classic music is stirring in this original exploration of the fate of the star-crossed lovers.
Under the artistic leadership of Patricia Barker since 2010, Grand Rapids Ballet has made an exciting transformation that has attracted world-class dancers, produced some of the most creative works in contemporary dance, and generated local, national, and international attention.
