Romeo and Juliet on 22 September 2015 at 7.30pm – The Royal Ballet
Kenneth MacMillan's ballet of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers is a classic of 20th-century ballet, and a heartbreaking match for Prokofiev's score. Created for The Royal Ballet in 1965, it's a key work in the Company's repertory and a must-see for ballet fans and newcomers alike.
