The Rite of Spring/ Romeo and Juliet is a radical interpretation of Stravinsky’s ballet and orchestral concert work in the theatrical setting of love and hatred between two Shakespeare’s rivaling households, Capulet and Montague.
Conceived by Concert Theatre, the production uses commedia half masks and piano four-hands to create a music-centred physical theatre piece through the re-telling of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy with a collaboration among concert pianists from the Royal Academy of Music, actors and director from Lecoq-based system and mask specialists from Trestle Theatre.
