Romeo and Juliet



There are no performances listed for Romeo and Juliet

Love at first dance, forbidden passions, dangerous secrets and starcrossed fate combine in an exhilarating classic ballet.

Kenneth MacMillan's best-loved adaptation of this famous play continues Birmingham Royal Ballet's 2016 Shakespeare celebration.

Set to Prokofiev's soaring score, Romeo and Juliet tells the familiar tale of two young lovers at the mercy of powerful families and their own hearts. From the balcony scene's ecstatic pas de deux to the lovers' heart-breaking ends, Romeo and Juliet has been an audience favourite since its first performance.

'One doubts that there is any work, in any medium, more emotionally pummelling than Kenneth MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet.'
The Telegraph

'Paul Andrews’s designs are rich […], giving the whole ballet the look of a renaissance painting.'
The Independent

Performance length


Approx 2 hours and 50 minutes
