Undoubtedly history's most romantic and tragic story of the original star crossed lovers, Romeo and Julietet lends itself beautifully to the language of ballet, from kinetic violence to the exquisite pain of young love, the warring Capulets and Montagues are brought to thrilling life through the choreography of Jean- Christophe Maillot and the unforgettably haunting score of Prokofiev by the returning Monte Carlo Ballet.
