We do not curently have theatre tickets available for Scottish Ballet - Romeo and Juliet This could be because we have simply sold out or it could be that this show is no longer running. The information on this page remains purely for historical and informational purposes.

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 back 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.

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
