From the ROH e-mailed press release

ROMEO AND JULIET
Kenneth MacMillan as part of the international celebration of Kenneth MacMillan

4, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13 June at 7.30pm
5 June at 2.30 and 7.30pm, 7, 14 June at 12 noon

Revival sponsored (2001) by The British Land Company plc and The Friends of Covent Garden

Shakespeare's tragedy of star-crossed lovers has inspired generations of leading artists from Gounod to Peggy Ashcroft to Baz Luhrman; Kenneth MacMillan is no exception. Marrying the play and Prokofiev's passionate, brooding score, he produced a classic of 20th Century choreography and one of The Royal Ballet's most popular works, all the more remarkable considering that it was his first full-length ballet. Using Nicholas Georgiadis dramatic designs, reworked in the newly opened Royal Opera House, this ballet provides pas de deux of startling lyrical beauty that are danced against a spectacular and forceful portrait of Renaissance Italy.

Press Release from ROH. Alessandra Ferri to replace Darcey Bussell in her performances of Romeo and Juliet. Link is here.

And this is a bit late but David Makhateli is to replace Robert Tewsley in his performances of R&J. He is going to joining the RB as a First Soloist from next season. Have made amendments to above post.

I am very sorry to hear about Darcey but it is a dream come true to see Alessandra Ferri live.
