Ballet Ireland present their critically-acclaimed version of Romeo and Juliet, the tale of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, accompanied by Prokofiev’s incredible music and performed by a cast of world-class dancers. Following Ballet Ireland’s hugely successful production of Giselle earlier this year, the company’s critically-acclaimed Romeo and Juliet will be in 24 venues throughout Ireland this winter 3rd November –23rd December, including performances in Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre Wednesday 15th – Saturday 18th November.

In this version, choreographed by Morgann Runacre-Temple and with Prokofiev’s stunning music, Shakespeare’s tragic tale is transported from the streets of medieval Verona into the classrooms of a modern-day high school and becomes a play within a play. The Chaplain at a school, divided by gangs and violence, brings a fight to a close. He, together with their form teacher, attempts to show the futility of such behaviour by introducing the pupils to the play Romeo & Juliet, with the feuding Montague and Capulet families, and the story of the doomed love affair between the heirs of these two feuding tribes. Each pupil is assigned a character and the action ensues…

The result is a heart stopping ballet with a dazzling combination of passion and hatred, comedy and high tragedy.
