Luxembourg Ballet

Experience one of the greatest love stories in world literature based on William Shakespeare.

Dance creation with a great star ensemble and "Luxembourg Ballet".

After numerous adaptations, we are now well acquainted with the story of the two rival families in Verona, the Montagues and the Capulet: Romeo Montague sneaks into a masked ball of the Capulets, where he meets Juliet Capulet, whose hand Count Paris has already asked for. Romeo and Juliet fall in love at first sight and arrange a secret wedding with the help of the monk Lawrence. However, Romeo's attempt to end a duel leads to the death of Juliet's cousin Tybalt, which is why Romeo is banished from Verona.

In order to prevent the forced marriage to Paris and to be reunited with Romeo, Juliet agrees to a plan devised by Friar Lawrence. With the help of a potion, Juliet's death is to be faked. Romeo is to be informed of this plan, but the delivery of the message fails. When he learns of Juliet's death by mistake, he returns to Verona. Convinced that he has found Juliet dead in the Capulet tomb, Romeo takes his own life. A short time later, Juliet awakens from her death-like sleep. Horrified by Romeo's death, she reaches for her lover's dagger and also takes her own life.

Shakespeare's timeless work continues to inspire admiration across genres. Luxemburg Ballet turns its attention to the interplay of light and darkness. "More light and light: darker and darker our woes," says Romeo on the night after the secret wedding. Choreographer Volha Kastsel breaks the symbolic light of tragedy into distinguishable shades of color, those of love, death, fate and free will. With a star-studded ensemble, Luxembourg Ballet invites you on an unforgettable journey into one of the most profound dramas of all time.
