It's been done before and it's being done again: a take on Shakespeare's classic romance, Romeo & Juliet
There's just over a month until The Australian Ballet presents Graeme Murphy's new production, creating the iconic roles of of Romeo and Juliet on two of the company's most riveting principal artists: Kevin Jackson and Madeleine Eastoe.

Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, David McAllister, says that the production will be visually arresting with a deep emotional core.
"Prepare to be taken on a balletic journey. Murphy's unique blend of storytelling and choreography in the hands of our exceptional dancers will be pure magic on stage, evoking all the romance and tragedy of this timeless narrative," McAllister said.
