Kenneth MacMillans passionate choreography for Romeo and Juliet shows The Royal Ballet at its dramatic finest. Sergey Prokofievs famously evocative score is the driver for some of the most ardent pas de deux and powerful set pieces in ballet history. The vibrant crowd scenes with magnificent designs by Nicholas Georgiadis vividly recreate the color and bustle of 16th\-century Verona in this Royal Ballet classic. Yasmine Naghdi and Matthew Ball will hug their first Romeo and Juliet their whole lives. What a dream debut for these two youngsters (The Spectator) Kenneth MacMillan was a consummate storyteller, and in Romeo and Juliet he came as close to perfection as its possible to get. (Culture Whisper) From the quarrelling townsfolk to the stately ball guests, this is a Romeo packed with life, the whole company caught up in the ballets unfolding tragedy.
