Romeo and Juliet


Choreography by Kenneth MacMillan
Music by Sergei Prokofiev
Scenery and Costumes by Nicholas Georgiadis
Lighting by Thomas R. Skelton

Against the sumptuous setting of Renaissance Italy, Kenneth MacMillan weaves a “dance tapestry rich in character that is rhapsodic and sensuous” (The New York Times). Sergei Prokofiev’s unforgettable music underscores the beauty and passion of this beloved ballet and its star-crossed lovers.
