Romeo and Juliet
by Jean-Christophe Maillot

Young love and centuries-old hate: with its primal passions, timeless themes, and heart-rending music that many regard as the greatest ballet score ever written, Romeo and Juliet has inspired the world’s greatest dance-makers. Internationally-acclaimed French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot conveys all of the drama of this poignant, timeless masterpiece in a moving two-act version. His company, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, is in demand the world over for its iconic productions, and the glorious technique and impeccable artistry of its 50 exquisite dancers. They make their Northrop debut with this powerful tale of tragic love that will captivate ballet enthusiasts and new audiences alike.
