The most iconic love story ever told, Romeo and Juliet sweeps audiences away in a whirlwind of forbidden passion and swoon-worthy romance. Featuring action-packed fight scenes and lush period costumes, this timeless and theatrical production whisks audiences to the streets of fair Verona as the Bard’s famous tragedy unfolds.

Master Class in stage combat with Tim Klotz


Join Fight Director Tim Klotz for an introductory stage combat class at Nashville Ballet. While the London-based industry expert is in Music City to set the action-packed fight scenes the Company will perform in Romeo and Juliet, you can work with him, too.

Tim collaborated with Nashville Ballet's Artistic Director Paul Vasterling to choreograph fight scenes for Romeo and Juliet. During the month of August, Tim will be back to help set the fight scenes with the Company Dancers for September's performances of Romeo and Juliet.

This master class gives students the opportunity to learn how actors and dancers make fights look realistic while on stage and on screen with challenging and dynamic instruction focused not only on combat, but also on the acting aspects necessary to make a stage fight successful!

For only $20, students will learn basic moves to create a lifelike fight scene and will receive an invitation to watch Klotz’s work unfold during an exclusive Romeo and Juliet rehearsal viewing.
