Romeo and Juliet



There are no performances listed for Romeo and Juliet

It's love at first dance when young Romeo Montague tricks his way into the lavish masked ball of the Capulet family. The Capulets and Montagues are sworn enemies, and the passion between Romeo and the beautiful Juliet Capulet is quickly forbidden.

Boldly forgoing the approval of their families, the young lovers play by their own rules and soon their dangerous seduction is filled with secrets, as the star-crossed pair hatch a perilous plot. Can Romeo and Juliet play tricks with life and death? Or will death play a final trick on them?

With a sweeping score by Sergei Prokofiev and soaring choreography from master of modern ballet, Kenneth MacMillan, Romeo and Juliet continues to be the all-time classic love story.

'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
