About the Performance


In response to public health recommendations regarding the COVID-19, Alabama Ballet has decided to postpone all scheduled performances of Romeo & Juliet. Due to the unprecedented circumstances beyond our control and the nationally declared State of Emergency, we have reevaluated and will take precautionary measures for the greater good of our team and our community. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our artists, staff, patrons and community.
We look forward to performing this production at a later date and once dates and all other details have been confirmed, we will share with you.

Current ticket holders of Romeo & Juliet, if you purchased your tickets through Ticketmaster, Ticketmaster will be responsible for handling all refunds. If you purchased your tickets through the Alabama Ballet Office, please consider donating your ticket cost to the Alabama Ballet, as your arts organizations need you more than ever.

Thank you for your support at this time as we navigate what’s next. We appreciate your understanding.

Choreographed by Roger VanFleteren, Associate Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer of Alabama Ballet, Romeo & Juliet is an all-time favorite classical ballet based on Shakespeare’s tragedy. The ballet is known for its breathless pas de deux, dramatic emotions and tragic tale. Faithful to Shakespeare’s original text, the ballet follows the fate of the star-crossed lovers from their first meeting to their untimely, tragic deaths. The tale is full of secrets, passion and eternal love. Romeo & Juliet is likely the world’s best-known love story, and the ballet version of the tragic tale is set to Prokofiev’s dramatic score, widely recognized as a masterpiece of 20th century music.
