Shakespeare's heartbreaking tale, Nureyev's blazing ballet

23 November 2017 at the Bristol Hippodrome with optional pre-performance supper at Hotel du Vin

English National Ballet, winner of the award for Outstanding Company at the 2016 National Dance Awards and 2017 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance, brings the world's greatest love story to the Bristol Hippodrome.

Full of action, humour and drama, Rudolf Nureyev's award-winning production based on Shakespeare's heartbreaking tale makes a triumphant return for its 40th anniversary year.

Sumptuous costumes and sets transport you to Renaissance Verona.  Amid the grandeur of the Capulet ball, our star-crossed lovers meet, unleashing a fateful sequence of events, from the romantic bedroom scene to their tragic final embrace.

Nureyev's inventive and passionate choreography is accompanied by Prokofiev's exhilarating score performance live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.

Why not come and enjoy the theatre and raise vital funds for eye research at the same time ....

By attending this event you will be helping to support vital eye research being carried out in universities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  We currently fund research looking into most of the prevalent eye diseases that affect so many people, both young and old - including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.

Only 2% of all medical research funding is directed at eye disease and researchers rely heavily on the support of charities like National Eye Research Centre to enable important eye research to continue.

We have tickets available for the ballet, commencing at 7:30 pm at the Bristol Hippodrome.

We also offer the opportunity to enjoy a pre-theatre 2 course supper at Hotel du Vin before the performance - the bar will be open from 5:00 pm and supper served at 5:30 pm.

Ticket price for ballet only: £40 (to include a £10 donation for eye research)

Ticket price for supper and ballet: £65 (to include a £15 donation for eye research)
