THE UNFORTUNATE SHAKESPEARE LOVERS FACE THE PASSION AND TRAGEDY in KENNETH MACMILLAN'S BALLET, A MASTERPIECE OF THE 20TH CENTURY.
Shakespeare´s immortal love story is world famous. Since its premiere in 1965 with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan´s "Romeo and Juliet" has developed into a classic of modern ballet. It captures the young couple's emotions when they fall in love, despite the barriers that eventually trigger the tragic end of the story.
Each new production offers new dancers the chance to play the unhappy lovers. The entire company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a bustling market leads too quickly to a sword fight and a family tragedy makes way for both the Capulets and the Montagues.
