STUDIO presents The Australian Ballet’s most anticipated event of the year– Graeme Murphy’s Romeo & Juliet – live from Melbourne’s Arts Centre.
See every step and feel every spin as STUDIO brings you the production live as it happens. Graeme Murphy is Australia’s best loved choreographer and for this world premiere season he reinvents the heartbreaking tale in his spectacular signature style. With costumes by fashion luminary Akira Isogawa and score performed by Orchestra Victoria, this promises to be a smouldering masterpiece from beginning to tragic end.
Plus just before the broadcast from 7.30pm, peek behind the scenes of the production in the fascinating documentary A New Vision. Director Philippe Charluet follows the lead-up to the world premiere performance of Romeo & Juliet. Watch as Murphy works with dancers and Akira Isogawa to produce a new interpretation of Shakespeare’s greatest tale.
You can catch the re-run of the performance on STUDIO on Sunday 4 December at 8.30pm.
