Kenneth MacMillan’s masterful interpretation of Shakespeare’s enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT’s signature productions. The story of Verona’s tragic star-crossed lovers is woven throughout a dance tapestry rich in character nuance and sensuality, with Renaissance Italy providing a sumptuous and period-perfect background. Sergei Prokofiev’s instantly recognizable music underscores the lyric beauty and passion of this beloved ballet. UMS and Michigan Opera Theatre co-present American Ballet Theatre as part of an extended partnership to bring dance to southeastern Michigan. Casting to be announced.
