Shakespeare’s tale of passionate love, Prokofiev’s intoxicating score and Macmillan’s choreography come together to create the ballet classic, Romeo And Juliet.
The roles of Romeo and Juliet are star ones, a fact reflected keenly in the three pas de deux that mark the lovers’ journey from first meeting to consummated love and finally to tragedy in the tomb.
Around Romeo And Juliet, the life of Verona plays out in vivid colour, whether in its bustling marketplace or a grand ball. There are noble families and their feuds, sword fights and harlots, the informality of youthful friendship and the formality of power and wealth.
