Matthew Bourne’s Romeo + Juliet is a passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict. The tale is set in ‘The Verona Institute’ in the not-too-distant future. Mysteriously confined against their will by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirits, our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together.
‘A timeless story about repressed emotions and teenage discovery is no better told than by the young’, said Matthew Bourne. Romeo + Juliet features the finest emerging male and female dancers from around the UK.
