Join Ballet Theatre UK as we restage our critically acclaimed production of William Shakespeare’s all-time classic tale of love, anguish and revenge… Romeo and Juliet.


This tragic tale of star-crossed lovers is told through the breath taking beauty of classical ballet, set to the haunting iconic score by Sergei Prokofiev.


Romeo and Juliet is a magnificent and grand production, yet the very human story at its heart is told with extraordinary intimacy. Whether in the lethal market place brawl or the blissful balcony pas de deux, the realistic and daring choreography resounds with raw emotion, truth and passion.


Featuring a company of internationally renowned dancers, striking costumes and grand sets that evoke the grandeur of Renaissance Italy this production promises to be the highlight of the calendar and one not to miss.


First performed in 2016, Romeo and Juliet was a title the company had wanted to mount for many years. Using the haunting score by Sergei Prokofiev, Artistic Director Christopher Moore created his interpretation of the iconic Shakespearean tale with the support of Rehearsal Director Gwénaëlle Poline Santos. Combining excellent story telling with steely technical choreography the production was met with rave reviews and fast became a favourite of the company and its dancers. 

We are excited to bring this title back to life, in partnership with BTUK2, to make a grander production, set to tour the UK in 2023. With a larger cast, along with new sets and costumes, Romeo and Juliet will be one not to miss. 

“A ballet company of great achievement”
