About the Ballet
Shakespeare’s tale of love, anguish, and revenge is masterfully transformed into Bengt Jörgen’s magical world of ballet. While remaining true to the original story, Jörgen focuses on creating a clear and emotionally-driven journey into this timeless classic. Romeo & Juliet has sparked the imagination of many an artist and has inspired Jörgen to create works of intimacy and warmth.
Bengt Jörgen's interpretation of this timeless classic has won international recognition and critical acclaim. It has been showcased in major cities and communities across Canada, the United States, China, and Hong Kong.
"A production that looks like a ballet but feels like a play."
"Shakespeare ballet woos the audience."
"Bengt Jörgen crafts a jewel-box Romeo & Juliet."
"Ballet Jörgen's two act version... is an appealing, resourceful, dramatically intelligent interpretation."
