I am surprised that the opening night's R and J was so bad. I hope that the Kirov hasn't become complacent after the rave reviews in June.

Nadine Meisner enjoys the Kirov's 'Romeo and Juliet' more than most. The fans over on found it a most disappointing experience to a man (or woman). Meisner points out, 'Russian Romeo and Juliets are bigger, darker, heavier – Eisenstein crossed with Botticelli – and that goes for the acting, too. The craggy posturings need getting used to.'<P> <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A>
