ROH Live Ballet: Romeo And Juliet 2022 (12A) 205mins

Screening at Kino Hawkhurst and Kino Rye on Monday 14th February at 7.15pm.

Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a great modern ballet classic of the world repertory. The nuanced and detailed choreography gives dancers in the lead roles a wealth of opportunity for differing interpretations of the doomed lovers.

Evocative designs by Nicholas Georgiadis bring the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and the Capulets. Prokofiev’s ravishing score sweeps this dramatic ballet towards its inevitable, emotional end.

From the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

Running time 205 minutes including 2 intervals.
