Sir Kenneth MacMillan's masterful interpretation of Shakespeare's enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT's signature productions. Against a sumptuous setting in Renaissance Italy, MacMillan weaves a dance tapestry rich in character nuance and sensuality, and Sergei Prokofiev's stirring music underscores the lyric beauty and passion of this beloved ballet's star-crossed lovers.
