On Sun 25 Feb, the Hallé presents a delightful reinvention of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy, Romeo & Juliet, packed with enchanting musical numbers and enthralling theatre guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.
Presented by the effervescent and wildly entertaining horn virtuoso Tom Redmond, the Hallé and renowned French conductor Maxime Pascal imbue Profokiev’s take on Shakespeare’s beloved opus with a dose of wholesome humour, immersive storytelling and wondrous musicality as the star-cross’d teenagers fall hopelessly in love while the Montagues and Capulets wage an endless, all-consuming turf war on the streets of fair Verona.
Prior to the show, The Bridgewater Hall will open for an engaging morning of free activities for the whole family in the foyer. Families are invited to embark on an archive-inspired scavenger hunt, create their own crest, write an original sonnet and learn more about the vast array of instruments within the orchestra – with ice cream and refreshments on offer throughout the day.
