Event Cinema: Romeo and Juliet
The star crossed lovers’ passion and tragedy unfold in this beautiful performance by The Royal Ballet that captures the colour and action of Renaissance Verona.
Approx 3 hours 15 mins with two intervals.
Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword
