The timeless and tragic love story of Romeo & Juliet is being celebrated this months as we mark Shakespeare’s 450th birthday. In this celebration Dances Patrelle will hold four performances of Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet in a dazzling 25th anniversary celebration.
This evening-length revival of Romeo & Juliet will feature Francis Patrelle’s choreography. Following Dances Patrelle’s tradition of educating children and nurturing professionals in the art of ballet, this Romeo & Juliet casts aspiring ballet students alongside a diverse professional cast of the highest quality, including Matthew Dibble, Amy Brandt, Julie Voshell, John Mark Owen, and Grant Dettling. The roles of Romeo and Juliet will be played by Alexander Castillo and Chloé Sherman. Mr. Castillo and Ms. Sherman both performed for Francis Patrelle as students and now dance professionally on the West Coast.
