2013-14 Season

Romeo & JulietDavit Hovhannisyan and Luz San Miguel.



When a story is retold as often as Romeo & Juliet, how it’s told is of utmost importance. And nobody tells a story quite like Milwaukee Ballet. This interpretation of the doomed lovers caught between feuding families forgoes prose for poses and couplets for choreography. Through movement and with the live performance of Prokofiev’s score, the dancers convey everything from infatuation to epic heartbreak. To witness them is to feel everything right along with them.
