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 Telegraph****

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.

Running time: Approximately 2hrs with one 20min interval.

What do our audiences think of Scottish Ballet's Romeo & Juliet?

"Brilliant Show! One of the best things I have ever seen. Choreography was incredible, we had a wonderful evening and it will take a long time to forget! Thank all the dancers for a wonderful evening.”

"Romeo and Juliet was wonderful! Dark, fiesty, romantic, angry, and lustful - and that was just the lighting!"

"Excellent showcraft from everyone in the cast. I thought the contemporary feel was an excellent fit to the score. Recommended for those who want something a bit different!"
