“Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life” - William Shakespeare
Melbourne City Ballet will return to Sydney in 2016 as guests of the Sydney Fringe Festival with their portrayal of William Shakespeare’s arguably most popular work “Romeo & Juliet” Choreographed by Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo, William Shakespeare’s classic story explores the chance meeting of two young lovers, the son and daughter of two rival families, who quickly develop a forbidden love.
