The National Ballet Theatre of Odessa, Ukraine, will present one of the most famous classical ballets, "Romeo and Juliet," at 3 p.m. Jan. 26, at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Aurora.

Fifty-five of Ukraine’s most talented ballet stars will perform a full-scale production of Shakespeare's passionate and romantic tale of tragic love, set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev, a news release stated. The company returns to the Fox River Valley after entertaining Paramount audiences last season with "Swan Lake."

The Ballet of the Odessa National Opera has its home in the Opera Theater, where the greatest divas of Russian ballet have performed on stage, from Anna Pavlova to Galina Ulanova and Maya Plisetskaya.

Tickets cost $35 to $65 at ParamountAurora.com, 630-896-6666 or the Paramount box office at 23 E. Galena Blvd. from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
