‘My only love sprung from my only hate.’ Prokofiev’s glorious score sets hearts alight in Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful retelling of Romeo and Juliet, the most famous love story ever told.
Love at first dance, forbidden passions, friendship and loyalty, dangerous secrets and star-crossed fate combine in this exhilarating ballet. A dangerous cocktail of arrogant youth, simmering tension and deadly feud leaves two young lovers at the mercy of powerful families and their own impulsive hearts.
From the ecstasy of the balcony scene, exploring love in all its soaring wonder, through the heart-stopping fight scenes where camaraderie and friendship lead to fatal outcomes, to the lovers’ heart-breaking end, Romeo and Juliet is dance and music at its most engaging, poignant and beautiful.
There will also be performances in Birmingham and London during October; full dates and details will be listed as priority booking opens for each.
