Romeo & Juliet
Screened live by satellite from The Royal Opera House Covent Garden.
Shakespeare’s story of star-crossed lovers is known the world over and, since Kenneth MacMillan’s superbly choreographed version of Sergei Prokofiev’s dramatic and majestic music premiered in 1965, it has become a modern ballet classic.
Capturing the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end, this revival brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.
