Romeo’s Kiss at The Baxter from 9-20 June

Send to Kindle

When I think of a tragic love story, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliette immediately come to mind. Not only is it one of my favourite Shakespearean works but it is also a beautiful ballet. I was excited to hear that Shaun Bovim of Bovim Ballet has shaken things up and jazzed up this epic tale with a new work entitled Romeo’s Kiss.

Performed for a short season only from 9-20 June 2010 at the Baxter Theatre in Rondebosch the fabulous Bovim cast with some of my favourites (including Kerryn Howard, Mark Goldberg, Owen Manamela, Simone Muller) is going to be entertaining to say the least. Bovim’s choreography always captures the hearts and souls of the audience and people from all walks of life are sure to be entranced by this new work.

Romeos KissBovim has combined the best of both worlds with the strength and discipline of ballet mixed in with his own modern / contemporary style and music from the Beatles. Just imagine what he has created with tunes such as “I want to hold your hand”, “Hey Jude” and “All you need is love” telling the tragic tale of Romeo and his Juliette. Bovim describes the ballet at “MTV culture meets So You Think You Can Dance, with beautifully designed Love Duets and rocking group divertissements.”

What is also really enjoyable about Bovim’s works is that the costumes are always as magical as the dancing and this ballet will be no different. The male cast will be wearing costumes designed by Craig Port while the female dancers get to feel and look completely glamorous in costumes designed by KLûK & CGDT (Christiaan Gabriel du Toit for those who are not au fait).

And if you are trying to get that special man in your life to accompany you to the ballet, but he is trying to use the “but the World Cup is on” excuse don’t you worry. The Bovim team along with the Baxter have thought of this already and have adjusted performance times to accommodate the matches that will be played in Cape Town
