ROMEO & JULIET

ROMEO & JULIET

ROMEO & JULIET

Shakespeare’s tragic tale of star-crossed lovers comes to life with passionate dancing, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and stunning scenery and costume designs evoking Renaissance Italy. An emotional and poignant tale of young love and loss set to the celebrated Prokofiev score, Helgi Tomasson’s Romeo & Juliet is one of SF Ballet’s greatest showpieces.

*Note: Romeo & Juliet will be an archival capture.

The 1994 world premiere of Romeo & Juliet was made possible by the E. L. Wiegand Foundation. Additional support was provided by Lucy and Fritz Jewett, Chris and Warren Hellman, Mr. Rudolph W. Driscoll, The Bernard Osher Foundation, Franklin Templeton Group, and Deloitte.
