Cost: $15
The Royal Ballet Company brings the color 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 Capulets. Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over, and since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The choreography of this production, recorded live in 2019, captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.
