About Romeo and Juliet At the Royal Albert Hall
Following the huge success of Swan Lake, English National Ballet returns to the Royal Albert Hall in 2014 with Romeo & Juliet.
Derek Deane’s epic production, drenched in passion and tragedy, with Prokofiev’s evocative and powerful score at its heart, has been universally acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.
From the lavish masked ball that brings together the two rival families with dangerous consequences to the seductive intimacy of forbidden love, no other ballet so intensely portrays Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of star-cross’d lovers. Set amongst the hustle and bustle, street fighting and rivalry of Renaissance Verona, with all its decadent richness and grandeur, this magnificent staging is brought to life by a company of over 120 dancers, actors and swordfighters.
In the flickering shadows of the candlelit tomb, the loss and longing of the heart-wrenching final scene is only made more powerful by the passion of the lovers themselves.
