UNLV Dance & Theatre, a collaboration: Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet

The first concert of the year resumes the “In Orchestra” series. UNLV Dance will team with the UNLV Orchestra to present Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. Rather than simply reconstruct the original ballet, the goal of the work is to collect a group of choreographers and tell the traditional story though the lens of numerous dance styles and genres, including ballet, modern dance, jazz, contemporary dance, hip hop, and folk dance. “In Orchestra 3” also will bring members of the UNLV Theatre into the mix by reciting some of Shakespeare’s original text throughout piece.
