Scottish Ballet has a new production of 'Romeo and Juliet' by their Artistic Director Robert North. His choreography has not charmed the critics since his arrival, but this one is greeted with luke-warm praise from Donald Hutera, who says that, 'North's robust, lyrical modern-dance style is more serviceable than inspired, and often dwarfed by the score.'
However both Hutera and Ismene Brown are blown away by the Finnish dancer Mia Johansson as Juliet. Scottish Ballet need some good news at the moment.
