This week Cool Hunting Video presents a behind the scenes look at the New York City Ballet‘s new production of Romeo + Juliet.
Kristin Sloan, a dancer and editor of The Winger, a ballet blog, takes us into rehearsals for a first hand look at how a ballet classic is completely reinvented with new sets, costumes, choreography and even changes to its famous score. We hear from Romeo (Robert Fairchild) and Juliet (Sterling Hyltin) who discuss their first-hand experiences with one of the greatest tragic love stories of all time.
Kristin made a multi part video of this incredible production, and we are very excited to have an edit made exclusively for Cool Hunting’s viewers. We’d like to thank Kristin and the New York City Ballet for sharing their journey with us.
If you’re on the East Coast in early July you can catch the performance at the
Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
