ROMEO & JULIET
One of the greatest love stories of all time
Touring Ireland 3 Nov - 23 Dec 2017 to 24 theatres.
“…Runacre-Temple taps into a zeitgeist so many other ballet companies desperately want to access right now, making relevant what is often seen as an elitist art form while still honouring its roots.” “Runacre-Temple gets it” The Irish Times
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.
