Romeo and Juliet - Ballet Information

The music for the ballet Romeo and Juliet was written by Sergei Prokofiev, who based his work on William Shakespeare's enduringly popular play of the same name. The original form of the ballet was completed in 1935, and it received its first full staging in 1938 at the Mahen Theatre in what is now the Czech Republic. But after addressing multiple concerns, including that it was difficult to dance to, Prokofiev made a revised version (the version most used today) that premiered at the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad in 1940, featuring choreography by Leonid Lavrovsky.

Over the years, several other choreographers have made their own interpretations of the piece, including John Cranko's 1962 version for the Stuttgart Ballet, Sir Kenneth MacMillan's 1965 production for the Royal Ballet in London, Rudolf Nureyev's 1977 version for what is now the English National Ballet, Laszlo Seregi's 1985 Hungarian National Ballet version, Peter Martins' 2007 staging (styled "Romeo + Juliet" in print) for the New York City Ballet, and Alexei Ratmansky's 2011 version for the National Ballet of Canada.

Though there are many different versions of the choreography for the Romeo and Juliet ballet, each captures the essence of the tragically romantic source material and translates it into beautiful movement. With tickets to Romeo and Juliet, you can experience the beauty live.
