Romeo and Juliet
Against a backdrop of ancient feuds and gangwarfare, an ill-fated young couple falls hopelessly in love, but their families are bitter enemies. In order to be together the two lovers must be prepared to risk everything. In Ballet Ireland's production, Shakespeare's tragic tale is transported from the streets of medieval Verona into the classrooms of a modern-day high school. It becomes a play within a play. The result is a ballet with a dazzling combination of passion and hatred, comedy and high tragedy.
