ROMEO & JULIET

ROMEO & JULIET

ROMEO & JULIET

Shakespeare’s tragic tale of star-crossed lovers comes to life with passionate dancing, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and stunning scenery and costume designs evoking Renaissance Italy. An emotional and poignant tale of young love and loss set to the celebrated Prokofiev score, Helgi Tomasson’s Romeo & Juliet is one of SF Ballet’s greatest showpieces.

*Note: Romeo & Juliet will be an archival capture.
