Matthew Bourne’s Romeo + Juliet is a passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic love story. Confined against their will by a society that seeks to divide, our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together. Romeo + Juliet busts with youth, vitality and Matthew Bourne’s trademark storytelling.

This marks Illuminations fourth collaboration with New Adventures and Sadler’s Wells. Romeo + Juliet was directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne, designed by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis and new orchestrations of the Prokofiev score by Terry Davies, played by the New Adventures Orchestra. Filming was produced by Lucie Conrad with John Wyver as the executive producer.
