The Royal Opera House presents...

Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan’s 20th-century ballet masterpiece.

Romeo and Juliet fall passionately in love, but their families are caught up in a deadly feud. They marry in secret, but tragic circumstances lead Romeo to kill Juliet’s cousin Tybalt in a fight. As punishment, Romeo is banished from Verona.

Juliet’s parents try to force her to marry Paris, so she resorts to drastic action. She drinks a sleeping potion that will feign death, a deception that will enable her to escape and join Romeo. But her message explaining this fails to reach Romeo. On hearing of her reported death, he secretly returns to Verona and her tomb, where he kills himself. When Juliet wakes it is to discover Romeo dead. Devastated, she stabs herself.

ROH Live: Romeo & Juliet

Thu 20 March


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
