This story has inspired many an artist with its tragic tale of “star-crossed lovers”. Compelling in its timelessness, the work captures audiences with its deeply human story and enduring themes of love, fate and family. Reflecting on the divisions that persist in today’s world, Ballet BC’s World Premiere will offer a thought-provoking contemporary take of the classic that profoundly resonates today.

Ballet BC is thrilled to have this iconic story expertly crafted by Medhi Walerski, one of the most original voices in international dance today. Set to Sergei Prokofiev’s original score, this full-length commission showcases Walerski’s signature style that brings together dazzling landscapes woven with poetic, unpredictable and complex imagery.

    Ballet BC chose well in what I am sure will be a beautiful interpretation of this classic story. Ballet is timeless. This would be a thrill of a lifetime. I took ballet up until grade 4 but unfortunately my mom could not continue taking me to classes.
