Moscow City Ballet returns to the Royal Concert Hall with two stunning ballets, each presented in classic Russian style with full orchestra.
Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet is the perfect marriage of a powerful dramatic musical score with a passionate love story – every dancer’s dream. The choreography, interpretation and virtuoso performances beautifully complement the world’s most famous tragic love story and iconic musical score. For many, the stirring sounds of Dance of the Knights, commonly known as Montagues and Capulets, will be recognizable as the theme tune to BBC TV’s The Apprentice.

Show running time: Act 1, 55 mins, 20 minute interval, Act 2, 35 mins, 15 minute interval, Act 3, 50 mins
