Love is a many-splendoured thing

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene…

one pair of star-crossed lovers; two feuding families ~ the Capulets and the Montagues;

and a corrupt world where forbidden love blooms fast, burns bright and dies young.

Romeo and Juliet

I will be celebrating The Australian Ballet’s golden anniversary tonight

at the gala performance of William Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet.

The performance promises to be a visual feast with the choreography by the amazing Graeme Murphy who has “approached this classic ballet with an attitude of modernity”, and the “choreographer of textiles” Akira Isogawa designing the costumes.
