The most famous love story of all time, the grand and timeless theme, is the subject of John Cranko’s ballet Romeo and Juliet, which we will stage at the State Opera.

Ever since its premiere eight decades ago, Sergey Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet has been performed by renowned companies worldwide, as one of the pillars of the classical ballet repertoire.
John Cranko originally created an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet for the ballet company of La Scala in Milan, whose production featured the celebrated prima ballerina Carla Fracci and the dancer Mario Pistoni in the title roles. Four years later, in 1962, the Stuttgart Ballet, which he helmed, presented a revised version, starring Márcia Haydée and Ray Barra. Cranko’s production is still immensely popular and part of the repertoire of numerous globally renowned companies (the National Ballet of Canada, Australian Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, Vienna State Ballet, Joffrey Ballet in Chicago, Teatro Municipal de Santiago in Chile, Finnish National Ballet, National Ballet of China in Beijing, Bavarian State Ballet, Boston and Washington Ballets, etc.).
Our new production of Cranko’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s im­mortal tale, forcibly conveying human emotions, features the globally renowned designer Jürgen Rose’s original enthralling sets and costumes.

Premiere – Czech premiere: 22 February 2022 at the State Opera
