What light...?

You may remember my past as a Shakespeare devotee with Romeo & Juliet being one of his most famous works, and arguably the greatest love story ever told. It is also perhaps the greatest love story ever retold with countless productions of the classic story made over the years.

This time it's renowned choreographer Graeme Murphy's turn for The Australian Ballet. Murphy's version follows "a feisty girl and a feisty boy who are willing to take a stand for their love."

To steal some words from the Ballet it "promises to be a masterpiece from first blush to final devastation." I cannot wait to see it come to life when I go next week! Hoorah!

Graeme Murphy's Romeo and Juliet opens today. Costumes designed by Akira Isogawa.
