Shakespeare’s heart-breaking tale, Nureyev’s blazing ballet by the English National Ballet.

Originally created by Nureyev in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, English National Ballet has since performed it across the world to critical acclaim.

Continuing its commitment to taking world-class ballet to audiences across the country, this autumn English National Ballet presents its award-winning production of Romeo & Juliet choreographed by Rudolf Nureyev, at The Bristol Hippodrome from Wednesday, October 14 – Saturday, October 17.

The world’s greatest love story, Romeo & Juliet features inventive, passionate choreography set to Prokofiev’s score, performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.

Sumptuous costumes and sets transport you to Renaissance Verona, its piazza bustling with market traders, street entertainers and the restless factions of the Capulet and Montague families. Amidst the grandeur of the Capulet’s ball, our star-crossed lovers meet, unleashing a fateful sequence of events, from the romantic night scene to their tragic final embrace.
