Shakespeare400: Shakespeare in Ballet Playlist

Shakespeare’s work has inspired some of the greatest composers and choreographers to adapt his plays for ballet. From Tchaikovsky's invention of Romeo and Juliet’s endearing love theme, to Prokofiev's ground-shaking ‘Montagues and Capulets’ used in BBC’s The Apprentice, we have put together a short playlist of some of the best known moments in the ballets that have been inspired by the words of the Bard.

Join us on Friday 15 April, as we perform excerpts from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, conducted by Jaime Martín.
