From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 2 August 2017

Frederic Jahn danced with Rudolf Nureyev in his ground breaking production of Romeo and Juliet. The boy from Dunedin has had a career working with ballet royalty and brings that experience to the Royal New Zealand Ballet. He’s ballet master for Francesco Ventrigilia’s new production of Romeo & Juliet. Frederic explains how telling the Shakespearean story of love and loss has evolved since 1977 when he created Tybalt in Nureyev’s famous version, one that he still helps create worldwide.
