The Royal Ballet: Romeo and Juliet
June 16 @ 14:00pm - 17:15pm£8 – £13
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.
★★★★★ “…stunningly swoonsome study of wide-eyed love” The Guardian FULL REVIEW
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.
★★★★“Classic tragedy feels fresh and packed with life. From the star-crossed lovers of Lauren Cuthbertson and Matthew Ball to the bite of the sword fights, it’s an urgent blend of lyricism, storytelling and feeling” The independent Full Review
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.
