Sergey Prokofiev

Stanton Welch’s Romeo and Juliet returns to the Wortham Theater stage for the first time since the ballet’s debut in 2015. Set to Prokofiev’s breathtaking score, Stanton Welch’s production weaves the poignant tale of the star-crossed lovers exquisitely. The production pays tribute to the Italian Renaissance with lavish sets and costumes by acclaimed Italian designer Roberta Guidi di Bagno. Welch’s Romeo and Juliet is a brilliantly imagined interpretation of the world’s most famous love story, matching its classic themes with fresh choreography. The Bard himself would surely approve.

Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s take on this Shakespeare classic is simply breathtaking – as in, it literally inspired wonderfully stunned intakes of breath amongst the audience.
