THE ROYAL Shakespeare Company is performing a new production of Romeo & Juliet this month at the Alhambra.

A production branded “a fresh, fleet, blade-sharp revival” by the Daily Telegraph will be performed at the Bradford theatre until Saturday, February 16.

The RSC is asking people to consider what would happen if their first true love was someone they’d been told to hate?

A spokesman said: “Ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents, two young people will risk everything to be together.

“The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change.

“Will this spark a revolution, or will division continue to tear through generations?”

The contemporary version of William Shakespeare’s famous play features rising young stars Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick as the ‘star-crossed lovers’.

They first played the roles in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2018 in this critically-acclaimed production, directed by RSC Deputy Artistic Director, Erica Whyman.

Matilda The Musical moves into the Alhambra on February 19 until March 23, for the only Yorkshire performances of the current tour.

Comedy musical Avenue Q will be at the Alhambra from March 26-30, with its cast of live actors and puppets offering and adults-only portrayal of the lives of twentysomethings in a New York tenement.

Mark Morris Dance Group will present Pepperland, described as a gorgeously entertaining and witty tribute to classic Beatles album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, on April 2 and 3
