About Ballet West
On Valentine’s Day 2015, Ballet West is proud to present “Romeo and Juliet” in the Clyde Auditorium. This romantic ballet sets Shakespeare’s enduring tale of forbidden love, passion and tragedy to Prokovief’s emotional score and is a perfect night out for star-crossed lovers of all ages.
This production toured China in 2011 and is being reworked by the same artistic team that created Ballet West’s recent productions of The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
The principal roles will be danced by brother and sister team Sara-Maria Smith and Jonathan Barton.
Sara-Maria has “danced the role of Juliet with winning charm and assurance. She has a lightness of step, a supple grace and an actress’s ability to convey pathos with more than just movement”(Inverness Courier).
