WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ROMEO & JULIET

“Rudi van Dantzig’s inventive choreography is as fresh and engaging as it was in its RWB première in 1981.”
- Holly Harris, Winnipeg Free Press, 2014

“The balcony scene delivers what we’ve come to expect from a traditional Romeo + Juliet, but still manages to feel fresh.”
- Salena Kitteringham, Edmonton Journal, 2014
