Romeo & Juliet

Spine-chilling romance is a hot blooded affair … performances of startling conviction


A vividly theatrical and carefully conceived ballet, it emphasises the hot-blooded passions of youth … fluent and lively


Romeo & Juliet

Two households, both alike in dignity

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene.

Montagues; Capulets; a Ball; the balcony; fights; death; unrestrained passion; an all-consuming love; the ultimate tragedy.

Northern Ballet Theatre's classic adaptation of Shakespeare's most famous tragedy returns to the stage. Passionate and dramatic, this is ballet at its most intense.

Sets and costumes designed by the award winning Lez Brotherston, stunning dancing and Prokofiev's timeless score make NBT's critically acclaimed Romeo & Juliet an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Total running time: 2hours 24min
