SYMPHONIE DRAMATIQUE, OP. 17 (1839)
TEXT BY EMILE DESCHAMPS AFTER WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

The legend of the martyred lovers of Verona, immortalised by Shakespeare, is revisited for the Paris Opera Ballet by one of the key figures of contemporary dance, Sasha Waltz. To Berlioz’s dramatic symphony, combining music, song and dance, the choreographer evokes all the emotion inherent in this tragic love story.
