Sir Kenneth MacMillan's interpretation of Shakespeare's enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT's signature productions. The story of Verona's tragic star-crossed lovers is weaved throughout a rich dance tapestry, with Renaissance Italy providing an elegant and period-perfect background. The original production starred Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in the lead roles, making it one of ballets most enduring and culturally important productions.
