Where: Symphony Hall: 75th N Second Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004
Why: Ib Andersen's full length ballet adaptation of perhaps the greatest love story ever told returns just in time for Valentine's day. Set in 16th century Verona, Romeo & Juliet chronicles Shakespeare's tale of two beautiful teenagers from families on opposing sides of a bitter feud. With its sweepingly regal ballroom scenes, vivacious swordplay and poignant pas de deux, Ib Andersen's production is a feast for the eyes and ears.
"In praising Ballet Arizona's Romeo & Juliet, it is tough to know wha to laud first: the brilliant choreography of Ib Andersen or the matchless dancing - and acting - of the players..." - Richard Nilsen, The Arizona Republic
