One of the greatest
love stories
of all time

Touring Ireland 3 Nov - 23 Dec 2017 to 24 theatres.

Romeo & Juliet

***** 5 stars: “I can’t remember seeing a better Ballet Ireland production than this one… Shakespeare’s story goes to new heights…a breathless mixture of youthful passion, love and lust” 
Michael Moffatt, Mail on Sunday

**** 4 stars: “Romeo and Juliet has moments of genuine beauty, with dazzling displays of choreographic flow that border on genius.” 
Chris O’Rourke, The Arts Review

“This is a thoroughly enjoyable version of the Prokofiev ballet. It brings it gently up to date but retains the purity of the original…. A treat of a show.”
Katy Hayes, The Independent 


Based on Shakespeare’s tale of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Against a backdrop of ancient feuds and gang warfare, the ill-fated young couple falls hopelessly in love, but their families are bitter enemies. In order to be together the two lovers must be prepared to risk everything.

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

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 autumn 3rd November – 23rd December, including performances in Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre Wednesday 15th – Saturday 18th November.
