San Francisco Ballet: Romeo & Juliet on Tuesday, February 14th from 6-8pm in the Kingsley Room at Southbury Library
Join us for a pre-recorded screening of the San Francisco Ballet: Romeo and Juliet recorded at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco on May 7, 2015.
With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this colorful and emotional retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet has packed houses around the world. Helgi Tomasson's bravura interpretation of the Bard's greatest tragedy "lifts Shakespeare's complex and familiar language off the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography that is visceral, fresh, and ultimately sublime." (Huffintgon Post). Running time is 2 hours.
