Event Description
Drexel University’s Westphal College with support from the Rankin Scholars Fund will present the world premiere of Romeo and Juliet – The Choice, a re-imagining of the popular classical ballet composed by Russian modernist Sergei Prokofiev.

This innovative and immersive production is co-created by choreographer and dance faculty, Sandra Parks, and acclaimed pianist and Rankin Scholar in Residence, Frederic Chiu (https://www.fredericchiu.com/). The performance is part of a broader residency of innovative performance workshops, open rehearsals and scholarly discussions.

To further explore the themes surrounding Romeo and Juliet – The Choice, Drexel scholars of multiple disciplines will engage in a debate prior to the performance. After the performance has concluded, guests are invited to attend a reception.

Romeo and Juliet – The Choice is performed on November 17-18, 2018 in the URBN Center at Drexel University.
