New York City
Miami City Ballet Presents Romeo and Juliet
Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, West Palm Beach
The world’s most famous love story! Miami City Ballet brings to life the ultimate tale of romance and tragedy – Romeo and Juliet – in an opulent production set to Sergei Prokofiev’s throbbing music, considered to be one of the greatest of all ballet scores.
John Cranko’s Romeo and Juliet is both spectacular and intimate. Here we see a boisterous crowd reveling in Verona’s town square; unrelenting enemies dueling to the death in the street; a mortal feud between the Montagues and the Capulets, two of the city’s great aristocratic families; a pair of “star-cross’d lovers” dancing in the moonlight.
We watch, breathless as the swoon and joy of first love lead – inevitably, disastrously – to the fatal desperation of the two young people who are determined to remain together at all costs…
Be swept away by the beauty, hope and youthful romance of this heart-breaking ballet.
