55 years after its premiere, the Stuttgart Ballet revisits John Cranko's legendary Romeo and Juliet the very choreography which laid the foundations for the Stuttgart Ballet Miracle, the companys meteoric rise to fame. Vividly etched characters, breathtaking pas de deux, dashing sword fights, colorful ensemble scenes, magnificent sets and costumes evoking the sunlit streets of Verona all this is Crankos Romeo and Juliet. John Cranko, who led the Stuttgart Ballet from 1961 until his death in 1973, created the choreography of Romeo and Juliet especially for his ensemble.

Set to Sergei Prokofievs lush score, Crankos ballet is one of the definitive versions of the Shakespearean love tale being performed around the globe today. This production is marked by yet another anniversary: Marcia Haydee, Crankos muse and prima ballerina, was the very first, highly acclaimed Juliet. Haydee, who followed Cranko as artistic director of the Stuttgart Ballet, participates in this performance as Julias nurse, celebrating her 80th birthday on stage. She is joined by two other stars of the ensemble, Haydees former dance partner Egon Madsen as Friar Lawrence and Artistic Director Reid Anderson as Lord Capulet. As danced by the Stuttgart Ballet one of the worlds leading ballet companies this performance is a revelation (Daily Express).
