Northern Ballet's award-winning Romeo & Juliet makes it's long awaited return to Leeds Grand Theatre on Friday 8 March.

Romeo & Juliet promises to deliver ballet at its most dramatic and intense. With glorious dancing and Prokofiev’s timeless music played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, audiences will be invited to rediscover the iconic love story like it’s the very first time.

The beloved adaptation by Christopher Gable CBE and Massimo Moricone, which was broadcast by the BBC and enjoyed sell-out performances in the UK and overseas, was forced into hiatus after sets and costumes were tragically damaged in floods.

Thanks to generous donations and the hard work of cast and crew, Northern Ballet is in the process of restoring the production to its former glory, ready to delight audiences in Leeds.

The ballet will open at Leeds Grand Theatre on Friday 8 March until Saturday 16 March before heading to Sheffield Lyceum Theatre.
