Romeo and Juliet

Contemporary Dance Production by the Ballet of Pécs
Budapest, Müpa Budapest, 22 February 2019 19:00
The most intense love story in history: devotion and hatred, youth and death, tragedy and redemption. The Ballet of Pécs is famous for creating highly innovative adaptations, and surely they will breathe new life into the ancient classic tale of Romeo and Juliet.
"The production seeks out the causes for senseless conflict between cultured people and the practically instinctive rejection of the 'other'. Will the death of the two young lovers really bring about a genuine rapprochement? Can the irreconcilable be reconciled? Balázs Vincze's passionate and dynamic language of dance carries the audience away to an exciting journey.


The unique visual world is provided by the fertile imaginations of set designer Balázs Cziegler and costume designer Julcsi Kiss. The company's core philosophy, as well as a key element of its success, is to create choreographies chiefly to the music of contemporary composers, alongside the great classics. The original - classically inspired - music for this Romeo and Juliet adaptation was written by Richárd Riederauer. In the spirit of both innovation and respect for tradition, our aim continues to be to touch the viewer's heart and to make them think."
