A masterpiece from first blush to final devastation.

Graeme Murphy is famous for bringing new life to classic ballets, and now he's tackled the greatest love story ever told: Romeo & Juliet. Traversing time and place, Murphy's ballet follows "a feisty girl and a feisty boy who are willing to take a stand for their love". Young passion smoulders at its core, but Murphy also tackles the consequences of greed and war, and asks what happens to humanity when love dies. This grand story is also grandly designed, with costumes by Australian fashion luminary Akira Isogawa and some of The Australian Ballet's most ambitious sets to date. The result is a masterpiece from first blush to final devastation.
