Birmingham Royal Ballet Principal Jamie Bond has named Romeo in Kenneth MacMillan’s production of Romeo and Juliet as his favourite role. Speaking of his enthusiasm for dancing in an interview published this summer, he said:

‘If I was to win the lottery next week I would still carry on because I enjoy it and find it rewarding.

‘We’ve got Romeo and Juliet coming up in the summer and again in the autumn; Romeo is my favourite role. When you’re dancing roles like that it’s never just a job, it’s a passion!’
