1,000 £10 tickets will be available for young people to see Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet through Barclays Dance Pass when the production returns to Sadler’s Wells in August 2023.
Launched in January 2000, Sadler’s Wells has registered more than 16,000 Barclays Dance Pass members. Registration is free and can be completed via the Sadler’s Wells web site.
Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet runs for five weeks at Sadler’s Wells from 1 August to 2 September, following tour dates in Leicester, Salford, High Wycombe and Hull in the first co-production between New Adventures and Sadler’s Wells.
Sir Alistair Spalding CBE, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells, said, “Matthew has taken another of the traditional classical ballets and made it on a young cast and relevant for a new younger generation of audience that makes it a perfect offering for Dance Pass members.”
Matthew Bourne added, "broadening our audience, as well as our talent base, is key to New Adventures. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have become dance fans because of our work, and we hope the Barclays Dance Pass offering of 1,000 tickets to our production of Romeo and Juliet will ignite a lifelong adventure with dance for many more.”
