ROMEO & JULIET

image of ROMEO & JULIET

Performed by the Russian State Ballet of Siberia and accompanied by the Russian State Ballet Orchestra. 

Shakespeare’s tale of primal passion and timeless tragedy is brought to life by Prokofiev’s soaring score, set in bustling Renaissance Verona and with an emotionally charged choreography that befits the world’s greatest love story.  From the grandeur of the masked ball to the intimacy of the lovers’ balcony, this star-crossed story of duels, bitter family feuds and love that cannot be, is unmissable.

The critics said: "Colourful costumes, fantastic setting and amazing ballet."

"It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences. Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage," Sergei Bobrov, Artistic Director
