The Royal Ballet: Romeo & Juliet
Sun 06 Mar 2022
Romeo and Juliet has become a great modern ballet classic of the ballet repertory since its creation by Royal Ballet Director Kenneth MacMillan and its premiere in 1965. In this special screening, the doomed lovers attempt to find their way through the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and the Capulets.
Marcelino Sambé (Romeo), Anna-Rose O’Sullivan (Juliet)
Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
Running time: 3 hours and 25 minutes (including two intervals)
