Stuttgart Ballet
Romeo & Juliet

Witness the story of the world’s most famous star-crossed lovers as it unfolds in choreographic legend John Cranko’s iconic treatment of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

This October, the Stuttgart Ballet returns to Esplanade with their definitive classical dance version of the play, bringing with them technical brilliance, lavish sets and costumes designed by Jürgen Rose.

Set to Sergei Prokofiev’s most heart-rending score, this version of Romeo and Juliet premiered in 1962 with a triumphant run, introducing the world not only to Cranko’s gift for storytelling, but also signature breathtaking “Stuttgart lifts” and one of the most famous Balcony pas de deuxs in the ballet canon for which the company is celebrated. Today, it is regarded as a timeless masterpiece of unsurpassed beauty, performed by ballet companies around the world.

The Stuttgart Ballet

For over five decades, the Stuttgart Ballet has prided itself for being the vanguard of modern ballet. Although dating as far back as the 17th century, it was not until the 1960s, after the appointment of John Cranko as artistic director, that it shot to fame. Today, the company is known for producing prolific choreographers and dancers who share Cranko’s vision and spirit of invention, some of whom include William Forsythe, Jiří Kylián and John Neumeier.

“The Stuttgart Ballet doesn’t follow trends, it sets them.”



“This production reveals Cranko’s deft and audacious choreography and his mastery of storytelling through physical gesture and movement. As a choreographer of narrative ballet, he remains unmatched… Cranko’s attention to detail is exquisite and his use of comedy to highlight tragedy is breathtaking. If you think you’ve seen Romeo And Juliet, think again. This is a revelation.”

-Daily Express



“This Romeo and Juliet is a gripping and impressive piece of stagecraft [...]”.

-The Daily Telegraph


“John Cranko was the Zeffirelli of ballet: a detailed, complex, psychologically sensitive narrator who converted every conceivable emotion into grandiose movement.”

NINAGAWA Macbeth by Ninagawa Company (Japan)
To watch a Ninagawa production is to have an experience of a lifetime.NINAGAWA Macbeth, the iconic samurai classic that brought the late theatre titan Yukio Ninagawa international recognition, returns to Singapore after 25 years.Described by The Guardian as “achingly beautiful” and “a thing of wonder,” this tour de force transposes Shakespeare’s tragic play about a power-hungry general to the war-torn world of 16th century Azuchi-Momoyama Japan, turning Scottish warriors into katana-wielding samurai, and the highland woods into a mesmerising cherry blossom forest.Moving through breath-taking stage sets rich in symbolism, NINAGAWA Macbeth stays true to the original text while lending it the titan’s trademark blend of eastern and western styles, emphasised by a huge butsudan (Buddhist altar), witches in kabuki-style costumes, and the haunting sounds of temple gongs, Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem and Samuel Butler’s Adagio for Strings.The first of Ninagawa’s Shakespearean interpretations to be staged overseas, the 1985 international premiere of NINAGAWA Macbeth at the Edinburgh Festival put him in the pantheon of global theatre greats.In 2015, it was revived in celebration of Ninagawa’s 80th birthday. Marking the first anniversary of his passing, this special tour of NINAGAWA Macbeth is led by a stellar cast featuring eminent actors Masachika Ichimura and Yuko Tanaka.Directed by Yukio NinagawaOriginal play by William ShakespeareTranslated by Yushi OdashimaProduced by Saitama Arts Foundation and HoriPro Inc.Official airline: ANA
