NEW YORK (PIX11) — Set in Hong Kong in the 1960s, Shakespeare’s timeless tale of star-crossed lovers is given a fresh and thought-provoking retelling in Hong Kong Ballet’s Romeo + Juliet.

Enter to win two orchestra tickets and a $200 local restaurant dinner voucher to this show.

The original choreography by the company’s artistic director Septime Webre seamlessly incorporates intense street battles rendered in traditional Hong Kong-style Kung Fu.


Retro Hong Kong is vividly brought to life in the epic love story’s captivating dancing, complex drama and sumptuous cheongsams.


This brilliantly-imagined adaptation is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it fuses dance and drama against a backdrop of a world in flux.
