Details

The beautiful and tragic story of Verona’s star-crossed lovers has inspired theatrical and musical productions for 400 years. Saint Louis Ballet presents Shakepeare’s most enduring story as a full-length ballet, with original choreography by Artistic Director Gen Horiuchi and set to a stunning score by Sergei Prokofiev. The production is known for its vivid characterizations, dramatic swordfights and a romantic pas de deux best known as the “Balcony Scene”. The ballet of Romeo & Juliet captures the intensity of the bitter rivalry between the Matagues and the Capulets remarkably well, in addition to the power and passion of the young lovers.
