Romeo & Juliet, the immortal love-saga of Shakespeare, which has stirred millions of hearts all over the world, inspired thousands of poets and novelists in every region - has been created and re-created in the theatre and dance forms by some of the greatest artists of the last century. Strangely though, this popular ballet has not been much attempted in the classical Indian dance forms. 

This production has been appreciated all over India and through this presentation in US and Canada,  will be able to bring the richness of Western ballet and Kathak closer. 

The music has been specially created by Pt Birju Maharaj and jazz maestro Louiz Banks, choreography is by internationally acclaimed Kathak artist Saswati Sen, lights by internationally known Dinesh Poddar. Over 25 professional dancers from India will perform along with some local talents. 

Please note that the evening performance is a gala event.
