“This is a youthful, passionate, enthralling Romeo and Juliet” (The Guardian *****)

Kenneth MacMillan’s passionate choreography for Romeo and Juliet shows The Royal Ballet at its dramatic finest. Sergey Prokofiev’s famously evocative score is the driver for some of the most ardent pas de deux and powerful set pieces in ballet history. The vibrant crowd scenes with the magnificent designs by Nicholas Georgiadis vividly recreate the colour and bustle of 16th-century Verona in this Royal Ballet classic.

“Kenneth MacMillan was a consummate story-teller, and in Romeo and Juliet he came as close to perfection as it’s possible to get…" (Culture Whisper)

“From the quarrelling townsfolk to the stately ball guests, this is a Romeo packed with life, the whole company caught up in the ballet’s unfolding tragedy." (The Independent ****)
