ROMEO AND JULIET

Guest performance: A classic in new clothes. Semperoper Dresden’s amazing ballet ensemble will visit us to present this classic title, with new choreography by Gothenburg favourite Stijn Celis.

Trailer from Semperoper Dresden
Stijn Celis

The Belgian choreographer Stijn Celis’ modern interpretation of Shakespeare's tragic love story is a three-act drama for you to be consumed by and enjoy. The costumes reflect current fashions but the emotions are the same as in the original story: fervent love, rivalry and enmity between the families Capulet and Montague.

Conductor Alexander Hanson stands on the podium when The Göteborg Opera Orchestra takes on Prokofiev’s emotionally powerful music.


This guest appearance is an international exchange between the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani and Dresden’s Semperoper Ballett, which we have previously visited with our programme Spirit.
