RNZBC's Romeo and Juliet
There's a reason Romeo and Juliet is one of the ultimate love stories - the young star-crossed lovers' story is the stuff of stage, screen, music and of course literature. The Royal New Zealand Ballet company is about to reveal a new interpretation, one its choreographer Francesco Ventriglia promises will draw deeply emotional performances from his dancers. Lynn Freeman also speaks to Romeo - Joseph Skelton and to Juliet, Madeleine Graham. The national tour starts in Wellington on Wednesday.
