ROMEO AND JULIET

BALLET IN THREE ACTS


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.
