The world's most outstanding talent comes together under the banner of the Royal Ballet. 

See these most captivating stars! 

The Royal Ballet, popular around the globe for its tradition of dignified, orthodox style and theatrical repertory, will be coming to Japan for the first time in three years, bringing with it all the brightest new stars.

Proudly known as the largest and most influential ballet company in the United Kingdom, the Royal Ballet was founded in 1930 by Dame Ninette de Valois. The company served both to introduce classical ballets from Russia to the West and to nurture British choreographers. The Royal Ballet has successfully built its own unique traditions by fostering the elegant, noble "Royal Style" and a repertory of theatrical narrative ballets. 

With many of its current principal dancers coming from elsewhere in the world, this prominent company continues to draw the most elite dancers from all over the globe, attracted by the Royal Ballet's tradition and artistic magnetism. 

The two pieces to be performed during this tour in Japan are Romeo and Juliet, the pride of Shakespeare's homeland, and that classical ballet masterpiece of English theatricality, Giselle. Come see all the Royal Ballet's brightest new stars as they appear together in these alluring productions.
