Columbus Dance Theatre presents the world premier of Tim Veach's Romeo and Juliet at the Riffe Center's Capitol Theatre. This timeless story of young lovers caught between two opposing families will find contemporary resonance in Veach's new rendering of one of Shakespeare's most beloved works. "I am so excited to take on this new ballet for the Company," says Veach. "We have dancers of tremendous technical ability who also bring a great depth of theatrical capability." The production will have a full orchestra playing the famous Prokofiev score under the baton of maestro Jason Hiester. Come, and be swept away by this classic tale of star-crossed lovers.
