Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet
Choreographer Vincze Balázs and co-choreographer Molnár Zsolt’s passionate and dinamic choreography gives a new meaning to William Shakespeare’s story. Premiere: 14 September 2018 at the National Theatre of Pécs

Everlasting thoughts, human relationships and the widest scale of emotions appear in the tragic yet uplifting story of the star-crossed lovers: Romeo and Juliet. Their story teaches us about reasonableness, self-restraint and acceptance. How can civilized people instinctively reject and fight each other? Where does this preposterous hatred come from? Does the death of Romeo and Juliet solve the conflict of the families? Is it possible to pacify the implacable?

Choreographer Vincze Balázs and co-choreographer Molnár Zsolt’s passionate and dinamic choreography gives a new meaning to William Shakespeare’s story. A stunning visual world is created by stage designer Cziegler Balázs and costume designer Kiss Julcsi. The company’s philosophy and its key to success is to work with contemporary composers. Inspired by great classics, the original music of the piece was written by Riederauer Richárd. Respecting the legacy and the innovation of Shakespeare, our goal is to touch the hearts of our audience and make them think.
