In January 2008, Pacific Northwest Ballet brought Jean-Christophe Maillot’s masterful Roméo et Juliette to Seattle for its west coast premiere, making PNB the first American company to perform the work. Now, Roméo et Juliette returns to the McCaw Hall stage for nine performances, Friday, February 1 through Sunday, February 10, as PNB continues to celebrate its 40th Anniversary Season.
Based on the classic Shakespearean tale of star-crossed lovers, the ballet is performed to Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev’s famous Romeo and Juliet score!
The gorgeous costumes, designed by Jérôme Kaplan, were recently featured in a Seattle Times article.
For those 25 years and under, you can take advantage of specially priced evening performances on Thursday, February 7 or Friday, February 8. Only $15 for one ticket, or $25 for two. Also on Friday, February 8 is the PNB Backstage Pass cocktail lounge at no additional charge.
As a note to parents, the Pacific Northwest Ballet says some content may not be appropriate for young children.
Tickets start at $28, and can be purchased online HERE.
