Approx running time: 90mins

Matthew Bourne's Romeo and Juliet has been hailed as 'the single most eagerly awaited dance show for 2019' by The Daily Telegraph. This passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare's classic story of love and conflict is set in the not too distant future in 'The Verona Institute'.  Here 'difficult' young people are mysteriously confined by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirit and individuality. Our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together. A timeless story of forbidden love, repressed emotions and teenage discovery, filmed live at Sadler's Wells in London especially for cinemas.

Bursting with youth, vitality and Matthew Bourne's trademark storytelling, the UK's brightest young dance talent join the New Adventures company, with direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne, design by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis and new orchestrations of the Prokofiev score by Terry Davies, played live by the New Adventures Orchestra conducted by Brett Morris.

***** (5 stars) 'Electrifying entertainment, a brilliantly inventive reinvention of a story that feels scintillatingly new. Right up there with the smartest, sexiest, most stirring shows that Bourne has ever created' - Daily Telegraph
***** (5 stars) 'Your jaw will drop, there are moments so stunning that you might just forget to breathe' - Broadway World
