Romeo & Juliet
Scottish Ballet returns with a powerful reinterpretation of an all-time classic. Incredibly moving and enduringly relevant, this unique version of Romeo & Juliet was created for Scottish Ballet by Polish choreographer Krzysztof Pastor in 2008, and has since gained status as one of the Company’s most iconic works.
“Breathtaking – a triumph”
Sunday Herald *****
Set in the 20th century, this passionate story of forbidden love unfolds in three dramatic acts.
“Stunning... Genuinely beautiful and touching.”
The dancers of Scottish Ballet – for whom the piece was created – bring these iconic roles to life with emotional intensity and breathtaking performances. Romeo & Juliet is set to the world-famous Prokofiev score – performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
