Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo & Juliet
Proudly presented by Suncorp
The most famous love story of all time.
After a sell-out season in 2014, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s iconic rendition of the bard’s famous tale of star cross’d lovers, Romeo & Juliet returns for another magnificent season.
MacMillan’s grand production brings the streets of Verona to vibrant life with elegant costumes, majestic sets and daring choreography that matches the dramatic heights of this classic love story. With special guest conductor Alondra de la Parra (Queensland Symphony Orchestra) taking the baton at select performances, this will be a sophisticated production of artistic grandeur.
A drama of romance, passion and tragedy, Romeo & Juliet is the unmissable ballet event of the year.
