Romeo & Juliet
Romeo & Juliet – ‘Thus with a kiss I die’ Music by S. Prokofiev Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians Join us for an unforgettable journey as Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for their annual UK tour with Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet is the world’s best known love story. William Shakespeare’s story of Romeo and Juliet was one of the first works of literature to inspire ballet choreographers, so perfectly suited to dance are its drama, romance and tragedy. Set to one of Prokofiev’s most evocative scores, this production is filled with beautiful dance, riveting battles and compelling drama, all amidst stunning production designs. Two innocent youths meet by chance, relishing the discovery and passion of first love only to be shattered by tragic twists of fate and the destructive hatred of their feuding families. Romeo and Juliet has become one of the most beloved ballets, capturing the imagination of many generations over the years. It continues to attract audiences worldwide, who love its mystery and romance.
