Birmingham Royal Ballet
Romeo and Juliet
with Virginia Symphony Orchestra

April 20-22, Chrysler Hall

Forbidden passion, dangerous secrets and star-crossed fate collide in this exhilarating ballet classic. From the lovers’ first tender touch to the brash swordplay of the feuding nobles, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s indelible choreography illuminates Shakespeare’s poignant tale as you have never seen it before. This spectacular production is a feast for the eyes and the ears: lavish costumes and elegant sets summon a Renaissance court and the full Virginia Symphony Orchestra performs the unforgettable Prokofiev score live. “Deeply moving…dancing which explored love in all its soaring wonder. A matchless theatre experience” (Birmingham Mail).
