Presented by the Bolshoi Ballet.

In Verona, Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love while their respective families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are caught in a bitter rivalry ending in heart‐wrenching tragedy… 

Alexei Ratmansky, former artistic director of the Bolshoi  Ballet, stages the company’s premiere of his production with dramatic urgency and a fresh re­‐telling of Shakespeare’s beloved  classic. His brilliant and detailed adaptation set to Prokofiev’s  romantic and cinematic score, reignites the story of literature’s most celebrated star‐crossed lovers like no other classical ballet choreographer today.

Music: Sergei Prokofiev
