Tuesday, September 22 at 7:30pm

Enjoy ballet on the Big Screen at City Hall with Kenneth MacMillan’s groundbreaking exploration of one of the greatest love stories ever told – Shakespeare’s classic play, Romeo and Juliet.

Bring your picnic and a blanket along to watch this special performance, live from the Royal Opera House in London.

This is a free event with no booking required.

‘O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?’ – perhaps the most famous line in English literature, and part of one of Shakespeare’s most captivating love scenes. Romeo and Juliet’s illicit nighttime meeting in the Capulets’ orchard so inspired choreographer Kenneth MacMillan that, even before his full ballet adaptation was given the go-ahead by Royal Opera House management, he had devised a Balcony pas de deux to be performed by Lynn Seymour and Christopher Gable on Canadian television. This duet later became the basis for his full-length ballet, and one of the most iconic love pas de deux in the repertory.
