We’ve all heard the beautifully tragic tale of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. We’ve read about the years of feuding between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s that lead to their forbidden love. And we’ve seen the movies with the heart-wrenching ending we all know is coming…

Yet, Romeo and Juliet is still a beloved classic love story, even after over 400 years. Maybe it’s forbidden love. Or maybe it’s the timeless story. But for the critics who watched Tulsa Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet, it was, “…a masterful work of dance theater, one that tells the story of Shakespeare’s ‘star-crossed lovers’ with an economy and artistry that delivers all the thrilling beauty of ballet and all the emotional power of drama.”  -James Watts, Tulsa World

From choreographer Edwaard Liang, now Ballet Met Artistic Director, Romeo and Juliet is the classic Shakespeare story of love that should never be, with a sweeping musical score from Prokofiev, played live by Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, action-packed fight scenes, romantic duets, and colorful costumes and sets that instantly transport you to the Italian Renaissance.

Tulsa Ballet Artistic Director Marcello Angelini says, “No matter how many times I see this ballet, how many times I rehearse it and how well I know it, I always find myself in tears at the end of the show.”
