ZfinMalta presents, Requiem for Juliet by Riccardo Buscarini. 

O me! this sight of death is as a bell,

That warns my old age to a sepulchre.

(Lady Capulet)


A new full-length work by ┼╗finMalta, National Dance Company, Requiem for Juliet is Riccardo Buscarini’s take on William Shakespeare’s 1597 play, Romeo and Juliet. Commissioned for ┼╗finMalta under the artistic direction of Paolo Mangiola, Requiem for Juliet stands as a sequel to the story narrated in Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy. In this work, the narrative is re-lived as an imaginary letter to the deceased Juliet from her bereaved mother, who is represented by an actress on stage throughout. 

Love and grief, gender roles, religion and power, are central themes in the play and in this adaptation. Buscarini’s choreography is intertwined with voice-over text, written for this work and inspired by the original play. 

Requiem for Juliet is a creative collaboration with a team which includes a dramaturg, composer and costume designer. Electronic music is interwoven into S. Prokofiev’s original score for the iconic ballet Romeo and Juliet. The stage and costumes are predominantly white, with the proscenium – where Juliet’s mother acts silently – divided from the rest of the stage by a transparent film.
