well we went last night and here is what a lay person thought of it. Compared only to what i have seen before this was quite different style. My daughter and i had a very hard time following the story so we just watched the dancers mostly. To us it seemed that they did not go on pointe alot and they used their arms and facial expressions alot more. All in all we did enjoy it but was not our favorite. There was not an empty seat that i could see.<BR>charlene

Hello Charlene - Perhaps you mentioned it somewhere else, and I missed it - but - where did you see this Romeo and Juliet? What company danced it and who were the dancers? Do you know who the choreographer was? There are several versions of this particular ballet. Some versions have more mime than others.<P>Since the MacMillan version (originally choreographed for Royal Ballet, London) of Romeo and Juliet is one of my favorite ballets and I really interested in your opinion.

I wonder if this topic shouldn't belong in Ballet? Basheva? Grace?<P>Yes, char104, I would also love to hear which company you saw, and what your daughter thought of it.

We saw it in ottawa ontario canada, it was by les ballets de monte-carlo by jean-christophe maillot.<BR>We haven't seen too many preformances so we don't have much to compare it to. We have seen royal winnipeg and two local pre professional companies and some on TV. The scenery was just these white walls they moved around and for the bedroom they threw a big piece of material over one wall. There was also a white ramp they walked on and raised it up for the balcony scene.<BR>charlene

Thanks for the information, char104. I believe you shouldn't make any excuse for not going to the ballet more. The fact that you took your daughter more than makes up for it.<P>BTW, I am moving this thread to Ballet, if no one objects, as we seem to be discussing ballet-going here instead of technique, right?
