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

"The glorious score and MacMillan’s inspired vision make this one of ballet’s great experiences"

- Chesley Plemmons , The New York Times
