The National Ballet of Canada: Romeo and Juliet

February 4 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until February 4, 2023

Featuring the NAC Orchestra 

Few of Shakespeare’s works have translated so well to the beautiful language of ballet as Romeo and Juliet. Choreographed by celebrated Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, this particular version was commissioned to celebrate The National Ballet of Canada’s 60th anniversary in 2011. Deftly attuned to highlighting the narrative’s dramatic moments and the intimacy of the star-crossed romance, Ratmansky creates a dance drama with electrifying fight sequences and an unforgettable balcony pas-de-deux. This larger than life, sublimely danced production manifests the simplicity of Renaissance art through its geometric sets and period costumes.

Don’t miss principal dancer Guillaume Côté’s final performance at the NAC with The National Ballet of Canada in the lead role of Romeo on Friday, February 3!
