This classic tale takes the Symphony Hall stage for six performances over Valentine’s Day weekend, February 10-13, 2022. The ballet, choreographed by Ballet Arizona’s renowned Artistic Director Ib Anderson, is a feast for the eyes and ears with sweepingly regal ballroom scenes, vivacious swordplay, and poignant pas de deux to the tune of Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev’s dramatic and moving score. A production for ballet, literature, and classical music fans alike, Romeo & Juliet seamlessly blends the touching yet tragic story of doomed love with Prokofiev’s rich score. The score is rarely heard in its entirety but will be performed in full by the acclaimed Phoenix Symphony, making Romeo & Juliet a must see for all performing arts fans.
