Romeo and Juliet – Royal Opera House

ROMEO AND JULIET ;

We will be showing William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet live from the Royal Opera House on Tuesday 22nd September at 7.15pm. 

Kenneth MacMillan’s famous version of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy set to Prokofiev’s magnificent score returns to open the 2015/16 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season.

This Romeo and Juliet is rich in the swaggering colour of Verona street life and in sword fights and celebrations, but MacMillan’s focus is always on the complex emotions of the young lovers – especially on Juliet as she journeys through the delirious happiness of first love to a shocked, adult perception of her fate. Juliet is one of the most coveted of all ballerina roles, and as MacMillan’s ballet enters its 50th year it resonates as deeply with audiences today as when it was first seen half a century ago.

Please arrive in time to register and order interval drinks should you wish.
