Stars cross, swords clash and hearts break in the greatest love story the world has ever known: Romeo & Juliet. Set to Prokofiev's passionate score -- perhaps the most sublime music ever written for ballet -- this impossible-to-forget tale takes Shakespeare's already sublime story and raises it to even loftier artistic heights. Tensions run high on the sweltering streets of Verona as two local families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are locked in a volatile feud. All it takes is Romeo Montague to catch the eye of Juliet, a Capulet, to set the whole world aflame. Be swept up in the drama, and feel the passion, as Oregon Ballet Theatre proudly returns James Canfield's signature work to the stage following an absence of more than 15 years.
