ROMÉO ET JULIETTE
Malandain Ballet Biarritz
Sunday, May 3rd at 8pm
Civic Theatre, San Diego
La Jolla Music Society presents Thierry Malandain’s reimagining of Roméo et Juliette set to Berlioz’s dramatic Choral Symphony.
Roméo et Juliette is about the personal hatred that exists between two of the most powerful families in Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets. It is also, of course, about the tragic fate of two innocent lovers. I have taken the mythical love story about love and death, while relying on Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Dramatique, to lift the gravestone over a dream that was too beautiful.
– Thierry Malandain
