Shakespeare Classic Jets Into Carmarthen With Independent Ballet Wales

Making a welcome return to Carmarthenshire Theatres, Newport’s very own classical ensemble, Independent Ballet Wales, present the greatest, most enduring tragedy as never seen before! Shakespeare’s most famous love story is now a ballet! Romeo And Juliet comes to Carmarthen’s Lyric, 9 October.

Independent Ballet Wales are a young, vital group of dancers who are pushing back the barriers of classical ballet. Using powerful and timeless stories the company challenges its dancers to interpret some of the finest characters in literature.

Committed to adapting the choreography to suit large scale theatres or smaller arts centres this likeable and hard working company tour to more venues than any other bringing challenging, original classical ballet to Theatres throughout the UK and beyond.

‘But soft, what light at yonder window breaks? It is the east and Juliet is the sun’. A pair of star-crossed lovers battle to overcome their hate-filled, feuding families: the Montagues and Caputlets. But love will not conquer all and tears this duo apart... Intense fighting, passionate duels and dangerous and secret liaisons are brought to life with dramatic choreography and a haunting score by Hector Berlioz. This is Independent Ballet Wales at their most evocative, with their unique, unpretentious style this is the perfect way to enjoy the highest possible standard of dance and storytelling. Original Choreography. Expressive Costumes. Stunning Sets. Simply breath-taking!
