The Royal Ballet are on top form in this youthful performance about Shakespeare’s star crossed lovers. “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, recorded in May 2019.
