Expect nothing less than Perfections from this amazing company. The American Ballet Theater delivers on our (at least My) expectations with an amazing performance. Simply Breath Taking :-)

Ranks right up there as one of the most grace-filled performances I've ever seen. The transformation of Juliet from a fresh-faced maiden to a woman in love was memorable.

Quotes & Highlights

“To see full-evening productions of “Romeo and Juliet” is to experience something akin to the first few forays into young love… The sheer sweep of costumes, the sets, the scenario and the famous Prokofiev score is overwhelming." —The New York Times

Description

Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s masterful interpretation of Shakespeare’s enduring romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, entered American Ballet Theatre’s repertoire in 1985 and has since become one of the company’s signature productions. Against the sumptuous setting of Renaissance Italy, MacMillan weaves a dance tapestry rich in character nuance and sensuality, and Sergei Prokofiev’s stirring music underscores the lyric beauty and passion of this beloved ballet’s star-crossed lovers.
