Romeo and Juliet Gala Performance

12 August 2019

On Sunday 11 August 2019 Matthew Bourne's Romeo and Juliet gave its celebratory gala performance at Sadler's Wells attended by special guests, friends and members of the company past and present. Take a look at our highlights from the evening.

We were delighted to be joined by many guests at the gala performance from New Adventures Patron Tom Daley with his husband Dustin Lance Black to veteran of the company and soon to be Boris Lermontov in Matthew Bourne's production of The Red Shoes Adam Cooper.

It really was a star-studded affair with company members rubbing shoulders with the likes of Beverley Knight, stars from BBC's Strictly Come Dancing and West End royalty.

Romeo and Juliet was so breathtakingly brilliant, mind blowing, tragic and beautiful all at the same time. Innovative and inspired as always.
