About Scottish Ballet: Romeo & Juliet

Following its sold out success with A Streetcar Named Desire in 2012, Scottish Ballet returns with another powerful reinterpretation of an all time classic, with a unique version of Romeo & Juliet. Incredibly moving and enduringly relevant, the production was created for Scottish Ballet by Polish choreographer Krzysztof Pastor in 2008, and has since gained status as one of the company’s most iconic works.

“Pastor’s choreography is slick and vigorous” Sunday Times

Set in the 20th century, this passionate story of forbidden love unfolds in three dramatic acts. Beginning in a monochrome Italian metropolis, Pastor shows a world torn apart by conflict with the aid of archive projection of film of First World War trenches. The second act moves to the sepia-toned 1950s in the wake of Mussolini’s Fascist dictatorship. Finally, the third act is set amidst the backdrop of today’s warring nations, dominated by the eerie blue light of the television cameras that report 24/7 from the frontline of global wars.

**** "Powerful and gorgeous choreographic expression”" The Guardian

The dancers of Scottish Ballet - for whom the piece was created - bring these iconic roles to life with emotional intensity and breathtaking performances. Romeo & Juliet is set to the world-famous Prokofiev score - performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
