SHAKESPEARE’S  STAR-CROSSED  LOVERS  ENCOUNTER  PASSION AND TRAGEDY  IN  KENNETH MACMILLAN’S  20TH-CENTURY  BALLET MASTERPIECE.

CHOREOGRAPHY: KENNETH  MACMILLAN, MUSIC: SERGEI  PROKOFIEV

Shakespeare’s  enduring  love  story  is  known the  world  over.  Since  its 1965  premiere  with  The Royal  Ballet,  Kenneth  MacMillan’s  Romeo  and Juliet has  become a modern ballet classic.

The  choreography  captures the  emotions  of  the  young  couple  as  they fall in  love,  despite  the barriers  that  finally bring  about  the  story’s tragic end. Each revival  gives  opportunities  for  new dancers  to  interpret  the doomed lovers.  The  whole  Company  brings  the  colour  and  action  of Renaissance Verona,  where  a  busy  market  all  too  quickly  bursts  into sword  fighting, and  a  family feud  leads  to  tragedy  for  both  the Montagues  and  Capulets.

DETAILS  OF  LIVE  PERFORMANCE  ARE  SUBJECT  TO  CHANGE.
