ROH: Romeo and Juliet on Tuesday 11th June 2019

Royal Opera House

Romeo and Juliet

Ballet in three acts

Choreography Kenneth Macmillan

Music Sergei Prokofiev

Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers encounter passion
and tragedy in Kenneth Macmillan’s 20th-century ballet masterpiece.

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.

Approximate running time:
 3 hrs 15mins (including two intervals)
