Romeo and Juliet
American Ballet Theatre

Photo credit: Rosalie OConnor

Kenneth MacMillan’s masterful interpretation of Shakespeare’s enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT’s signature productions.

The story of Verona’s tragic star-crossed lovers is woven throughout a dance tapestry rich in character nuance and sensuality, with Renaissance Italy providing a sumptuous and period-perfect background. Sergei Prokofiev’s instantly recognizable music, performed live by the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra, underscores the lyric beauty and passion of this beloved ballet. UMS and Michigan Opera Theatre co-present American Ballet Theatre as part of an extended partnership to bring dance to southeastern Michigan. Casting to be announced.

UMS will provide round-trip luxury coach service for a nominal fee on Thursday and Friday.
