English National Ballet: Romeo and Juliet

1 Aug 2017 - 5 Aug 2017

£12 – £55
Booking fee: £1.75 (Members £0.00)

See Shakespeare’s heartbreaking tale paired with Nureyev’s blazing ballet. English National Ballet brings the world’s greatest love story to Royal Festival Hall with Rudolf Nureyev’s passionate choreography and Prokofiev’s exhilarating score performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

Sumptuous costumes and sets transport you to Renaissance Verona: a piazza bustling with market traders, street entertainers and the restless factions of the Capulet and Montague families.

Amid the grandeur of the Capulet ball, our star-crossed lovers meet, unleashing a fateful sequence of events, from the romantic bedroom scene to their tragic final embrace.

Full of action, humour and drama, Nureyev’s award-winning production of Romeo and Juliet was created especially for English National Ballet in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. The Company has since performed it worldwide to critical acclaim.

***** ‘This is most deeply romantic of all versions, and the most tragic’ (The Daily Express)

‘Powerfully atmospheric’ (The Observer)
