Romeo and Juliet

The Royal Ballet

Royal Opera House, London
Until 11 June 2019

It may be one of the most familiar tales in English theatre, but Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s ballet of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers manages to make a 400-year-old tragedy still seem vital and devastating. MacMillan’s ballet, which premiered in 1965 and features sumptuous sets by designer Nicholas Georgiadis, has become one of The Royal Ballet’s signature works. In this run at the Royal Opera House, the company’s superlative dancers will ensure there’s not a dry eye in the house, with promise of emotion, drama and Prokofiev’s incredibly stirring music.
