“Dark, raw, passionate and stunning”
Matthew Bourne's ground-breaking adaptation of Romeo + Juliet takes Shakespeare's timeless tale of love and tragedy and reimagines it with a contemporary and daring twist. In this electrifying ballet production, Bourne transports the audience to a gritty, yet visually stunning Verona, where the traditional constraints of time and place are shattered, and the characters are brought to life in a fresh and vibrant way. With his signature choreographic innovation and a compelling narrative, Bourne's Romeo + Juliet is a captivating and emotionally charged reinterpretation of a classic love story.
During my time at the Wolverhampton Grand, which is new venue for the touring productions of Matthew Bourne’s work with his company, New Adventures, it was clear to see why Bourne is at the top of his game and with a very informative and fascinating Q&A with the man himself after the performance, his passion for dance was obvious, something I found extremely infectious and inspiring for future performers and choreographers.
