September 11, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — Fathom events and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts launch the “Lincoln Center at the Movies” Great American Dance Series with San Francisco Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet on September 24.

The event will include a special introduction by Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan of “Kelly and Michael.”

Since its creation by company Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson in 1994, San Francisco Ballet’s “Romeo & Juliet” has played to sold-out houses and taken its place as one of the finest dance interpretations of the passionate tale.

With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this colorful and emotional retelling of Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” has packed houses around the world

Set to an evocative Prokofiev score, the production is filled with beautiful dance, riveting battles and compelling drama, all amid elegant and stunning production and costume designs evoking Renaissance Italy.
