Sergei Prokofiev, Composer

The 2015-16 Season concludes with the return of Artistic Director James Canfield's critically acclaimed production of star-crossed lovers. Journey to fifteenth century Verona and revel in what Hal de Becker calls "an experience that engages the minds, senses and emotions of the viewers." William Shakespeare's most famous tale of feuding families is an epic journey from innocent love to fateful destiny, and makes for a heart-wrenching and lyrical finale to the NBT season.

Romeo & Juliet is sponsored in part by Audra and Bobby Baldwin.

Prior to both performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet. Accompanied by multi-media content, Michael Bahr, Education Director for Utah Shakespeare Festival, will offer attendees an inside view into the history and music of this beloved work. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater 45 minutes prior to curtain (6:45 pm on Saturday, May 14; 1:15 pm on Sunday, May 15).
