Shakespeare, the National Ballet, and the Royal Albert Hall – three cultural British icons. Derek Deane's epic production of the classic play emphasises its passion and tragedy more than ever before, fully realising it in the beauty of ballet. Featuring over 120 dancers and magnificent staging, it's the ultimate way to enjoy the story all over again, particularly when paired with Sergei Prokofiev's evocative score. Restricted view circle. Latecomers may not be admitted. Running time is 2 hours 50 minutes, including a 30-minute interval.
