With The Cleveland Orchestra
Ballet at the Festival
One of the greatest dance companies in the world, American Ballet Theatre (ABT) has been thrilling audiences for nearly a century and, for two glorious nights, will be joined by The Cleveland Orchestra for Romeo and Juliet, under the baton of Music Director, Franz Welser-Möst. Kenneth MacMillan’s masterful interpretation of Shakespeare’s enduring romantic tragedy has become one of the company’s signature productions.
Against the sumptuous setting of Renaissance Italy, MacMillan weaves a dance tapestry rich in character nuance and sensuality, while Sergei Prokofiev’s unforgettable music underscores the lyrical beauty and passion of this beloved ballet’s star-crossed lovers. This will also be the first time in history that American Ballet Theatre and The Cleveland Orchestra have performed together – simply unmissable!
