“The Stuttgart Ballet doesn’t follow trends, it sets them.”
Witness the story of the world’s most famous star-crossed lovers as it unfolds in choreographic legend John Cranko’s iconic treatment of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
This October, the Stuttgart Ballet returns to Esplanade with their definitive classical dance
version of the play, bringing with them technical brilliance, lavish sets and costumes designed by Jürgen Rose.
Set to Sergei Prokofiev’s most heart-rending score accompanied by Singapore Lyric Opera Orchestra, this version of Romeo and Juliet premiered in 1962 with a triumphant run, introducing the world not only to Cranko’s gift for storytelling, but also signature breathtaking “Stuttgart lifts” and one of the most famous Balcony pas de deuxs in the ballet canon for which the company is celebrated. Today, it is regarded as a timeless masterpiece of unsurpassed beauty, performed by ballet companies around the world.
