February 6-14, 2015 Roméo et Juliette
Choreographed by Jean-Christophe Maillot Music by Sergei Prokofiev Live with Atlanta Ballet Orchestra led by guest conductor Beatrice Jona Affron
Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Roméo et Juliette is back by popular demand for the 14|15 Season after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said “[a]udiences should pack a tissue or two and see this production.” A startlingly fresh take on the well-known Shakespearean masterpiece, Roméo et Juliette envelops you in the tantalizing power of young, forbidden love. An ideal way to spend Valentine’s Day with your special someone.
"Atlanta Ballet’s luminous ‘Roméo et Juliette’ defies analysis. Like first love, it is stirring at every level." – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
