Why see Matthew Bourne's Romeo and Juliet?
Matthew Bourne's Newest Adventure
Matthew Bourne and New Adventures returns to take on the Bard's dizzying tale of young love turned bittersweet tragedy in a zestful new production starring some of the country's brightest contemporary talents. Pitched as a modern update, expect sparks to fly as the beloved progeny of two houses (both alike in dignity) are swept up in an inimitable passion, leading to one of literature's most explosive finales.
The 12th full-length production from New Adventures under Matthew Bourne's leadership, the company is no stranger to reinventing classical numbers, with their all-male Swan Lake, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty continuing to thrill and inspire audiences across the world. With the original music by Prokofiev, it appears that this exciting new venture will be no different!
