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 inspired Bengt Jörgen to create works of intimacy and warmth.
Canada's Ballet Jorgen's Romeo & Juliet premiered in 1997 and has toured around the world to critical acclaim. To ensure the ballet remains as beautiful and vibrant as is was over 20 years ago, it is receiving signicant updates for the 2020-2021 North American Tour with new sets and costumes.

“Bengt Jörgen focuses his dramatic lens on the title characters’ love and creates an abundance of inventive pas de deux choreography, enchantingly danced.” – Lisa Jo Sagolla, Backstage Weekly, New York
