Choreography: Robin van Wyk
Music: Sergei Prokofiev

The ageless story of Romeo and Juliet resounds in the new choreography of Robin van Wyk, created especially for the romantic Maynardville Open-Air Theatre. Told in timeless classical style, this romantic ballet, will transport the viewer into a realm of family dispute with a tragic, but uplifting conclusion.

The CAPE TOWN CITY BALLET’s predecessor, the CAPAB Ballet Co, danced the version of this ballet by Frank Staff, reworked by Veronica Paeper, several times. While the story remains the same, Van Wyk will present his characters in his own unique way. He re-introduces the character of Benvolio, friend of Romeo, as well as Romeo’s first love, Rosalind.

Van Wyk uses the incomparable Prokofiev score to enhance his choreography, letting the spectator be swept along in its grandeur. His characters are portrayed by the stars of the CTCB, alongside stars of the past, Janet Lindup, who plays the part of Lady Capulet, Johnny Bovang as the Lord Capulet, and Mervyn Williams in the dual roles of Lord Montague and the Friar

Die produksie Romeo en Juliet is die dinamiese vertelling van die tydlose storie van die liefde tussen ‘n man en vrou teen die goedkeuring van hulle families. Sielvolle danspassies van kranige passievolle dansers wat met oorgawe en toewyding dans sal die gehoor na hulle asems laat snak.

U sal verseker Romeo en Juliet ‘n tweede keer wil sien!

Die Geschichte von Romeo und Juliet und die Liebe die verboten ist, weil die unterschiedlichen Familien sich nicht verstehen und schätzen. Diese uralte bekannte Geschichte wurde noch nie so fantastisch ausgebildet wie in diesem Ballet. Die Tänzer sind herrvorragend, kräftig und ausgezeichnet. Dieses Erlebnis muss bestimmt zweimal gesehen warden! Einfach erste Klasse!
