 Choreography: Krzysztof Pastor
Music: Sergei Prokofiev

Shakespeare’s masterpiece in a modern retelling which spans three eras of the 20th century.  The story, as timeless as love itself, is performed against a striking multi-media backdrop and is set to Prokofiev’s formidably dramatic score.  Bravura dancing and epic storytelling unite in this powerful rendering of the tragic love story.

U.S. Premiere

“Sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy breast. Would I were sleep and peace, so sweet to rest.”
