When Ballet Jörgen Canada comes to St. John's, Get Eventive is contracted to assist with event marketing and organizing community programs they offer above and beyond their main event to children, local dance schools and more. They are Canada's fifth largest ballet company and the nation's only major ballet company with a repertoire consisting exclusively of original works.
About the Ballet
Shakespeare’s tale of love, anguish, and revenge is masterfully transformed into Bengt Jörgen’s magical world of ballet. While remaining true to the original story, Jörgen focuses on creating a clear and emotionally-driven journey into this timeless classic. Romeo & Juliet has sparked the imagination of many an artist and has inspired Jörgen to create works of intimacy and warmth.
"A production that looks like a ballet but feels like a play."
- Michael Crabb, The National Post
"Bengt Jörgen crafts a jewel-box Romeo & Juliet."
- Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail
