Epic and tragic. 

A love story set in Hong Kong in 1960s

Warring triad families. Passion and tragedy. The famous balcony scene. Shakespeare’s timeless tale of star-crossed lovers has captivated audiences for generations and is given a fresh and thought-provoking retelling in Septime Webre’s new Romeo + Juliet. Set in 1960s Hong Kong, this epic love story captivates with emotionally searing dancing, family drama, sumptuous cheongsams and iconic scenes from the tragic tale. With Webre’s original choreography accompanied by Prokofiev’s dramatic score, this brilliantly imagined adaptation is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it fuses dance and drama against a backdrop of complicated politics and social upheaval.
