Romeo and Juliet

The story of the great love between Romeo and Juliet inspired by the drama by William Shakespeare translated by Zdeněk Urbánek according to the original published by Cambridge University Press in 1955, written and adapted to the musical on ice by Jindřich Šimek.

This musical love story on ice takes place in a historical backdrop, but uses contemporary set, sound and lighting technologies. This combination gives rise to an impressive show featuring many dazzling effects. The show is the largest of its kind in the world and an entirely unique project starring many athletes, artists and a great number of creative team members.
