Modern dance master Lar Lubovitch has created a vibrant new interpretation of Shakespeare's classic tale of passion and jealousy, ambition and betrayal, with his dance in three acts. A compelling synthesis of classical and modern movement, Lubovitch's original choreography is complimented by a powerful score by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal (Frida, heightening the emotional volitility of the central characters as the ballet's tragedy unfolds.
