Carolina Ballet is proud to perform once again the beloved tale of Romeo & Juliet. Set to Prokofiev’s magnificent score, Weiss’ ballet is a faithful retelling that expresses all the drama and pathos, action and tenderness, humor and heartbreak found in this legendary story.

Filled with dramatic sword fights, stunning costumes, lush scenery and breathtaking dance, this ballet underscores the emotion of Shakespeare’s powerful play and brings to life the love, longing and loss of this epic tragedy.
