"Prokofiev’s music is brilliant. Shakespeare is brilliant. Their genius lies in the fact that they are still relevant. I haven’t taken up this text because I want to offend someone or because I want to shock people. I simply want to show how well the story fits our own situation. The story of Romeo and Juliet can, I think, speak to a rebellious teenager, a tired advertising agency employee, a teacher seeking new interpretations, a student browsing for new iPad applications and a mother bringing up three children. I want to speak to ordinary people struggling with their everyday problems."

Premiere: 28 October, 2016
