Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet has been hailed as "the single most eagerly awaited dance show for 2019" by The Daily Telegraph. This passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict is set in the not too distant future in "The Verona Institute". Here "difficult" young people are mysteriously confined by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirit and individuality. Our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together. A timeless story of forbidden love, repressed emotions and teenage discovery, filmed live at Sadler’s Wells in London especially for cinemas.

Post-show Q&A: With local boy Dan Wright who is playing Tybalt in this production.
