Arguably the most well-known love story of all time will be retold by the English National Ballet next month.

William Shakespeare’s tragic story Romeo And Juliet follows a pair of star-crossed lovers from warring families.

The ballet will see audiences transported to Renaissance Verona, its piazza bustling with market traders, street entertainers and the restless Capulet and Montague families.

During a grand ball at the Capulet household, the two teenagers meet and fall in love – which unleashes a fateful series of events from the romantic balcony scene to the tragic final embrace.

The ballet will be set to Prokofiev’s famous score and performed by the company’s philharmonic.

It will mark the 40th anniversary of the production, which was originally created for the company in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s silver jubilee.

The English National Ballet was founded in 1950 as the London Festival Ballet by dancers Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin.

Today the company is renowned for taking world-class ballet to as many people as possible through its national and international tours.

Romeo And Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays during his life, alongside Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth.

Romeo And Juliet will be at the Bristol Hippodrome at 7.30pm from November 21-25.

There will also be a 2pm matinee on November 23 and a 2.30pm performance on November 25.

Tickets, priced £13.90-52.90, are available from www.atgtickets.com or from 08448 717627.
