Shakespeare's heartbreaking tale, told through Nureyev's blazing ballet. The world’s greatest love story, Romeo and Juliet, comes to the Royal Festival Hall in London with Rudolf Nureyev’s inventive and passionate choreography, backed by Prokofiev’s exhilarating score performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic. Full of action, humour and drama, Rudolf Nureyev's award-winning production of Romeo and Juliet was especially created in 1977 to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee. The Company has since performed it worldwide to critical acclaim.
Sumptuous costumes and sets transport you to Renaissance Verona, its piazza bustling with market traders, street entertainers and the restless factions of the Capulet and Montague families. Amid the grandeur of the Capulet's ball, our star-crossed lovers meet, unleashing a fateful sequence of events, from the romantic bedroom scene to their tragic final embrace.
