Presented by SEC LIVE
Guernica is a tragic love story inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in the Spanish Civil War
In this atmosphere of destruction and sense of fear, when the darkness takes over, two young characters find the light in their hearts: a wonderful love story, inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy.
With the illusion of being able to deal with the dark reality that surround them, the two lovers believe that the feeling of bliss found in their love can win out against this evident human cruelty. Outside the narrative, the central inspiration behind Simon Hoy’s Guernica is Picasso’s arresting 1937 master-work “The Guernica” which to this day predominates as one of the most powerful antiwar symbols.
A Melbourne Ballet Company production by Simon Hoy Music by Sergei Prokofiev This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
