The world’s most famous love story!
After 25 years, Michael Smuin’s Romeo and Juliet makes a glorious return to Ballet West! Sweeping and energetic, Smuin’s version captures William Shakespeare’s humor, drama, and heartache. It is carried by Sergei Prokofiev’s
dramatic score that tells the Bard’s story about two star-crossed lovers, caught in their families’ feuds.
Ballet West is back to live with live music, featuring the Ballet West Orchestra!
