Af John Neumeier | Gamle Scene | Repremiere | 24. januar kl. 20 |

Ung, ren og dyb kærlighed på Gamle Scene
Der skal tre ord til at erklære sin kærlighed til et andet menneske, men det kræver kun et enkelt blik, før vi instinktivt mærker meningen bag ordene. Heri ligger måske kimen til forståelsen af, hvorfor John Neumeiers opsætning af Shakespeares klassiske tragedie bliver ved med at bevæge og bjergtage publikum og anmeldere. Romeo og Julie er først og fremmest en ren og dybt tragisk kærlighedshistorie, der egner sig eminent til at udtrykkes gennem kroppens sprog. Den amerikanskfødte koreograf John Neumeier har i sin opsætning af tragedien i helt enestående grad formået at skumme Shakespeares tekst for denne kærligheds-tragedie, så man som publikum ikke kan undgå at blive indfanget af den følelsesmæssige rutsjetur, som de to unge elskende gennemgår.

Også inden for murene på Det Kongelige Teater har Romeo og Julie en enestående status. For mange solodansere og solister er hovedpartierne noget af det største, man kan opnå som danser. Men det, der i særlig grad gør forestillingen så eftertragtet, er, at der også er en række meget stærke biroller, der er rift om i kompagniet. Ikke mindst rollerne som Mercutio, Prins Paris og hovedpersonernes forældre er roller, som mange dansere gerne så deres navne ud for på rollelisten.

Også ved denne repremiere er der nye dansere i de store partier: Christina Michanek, der blev udnævnt til solist i efteråret, skal for første gang iklæde sig Julies simple og smukke kostume. Sebastian Kloborg, der prøvede kræfter med rollen sidste gang, forestillingen spillede, udgør par med Christina Michanek. Solist Ulrik Birkkjær debuterer i rollen som Romeo, hvor han står over for solist Femke Mølbach Slot, der ligesom Sebastian Kloborg debuterede i rollen ved sidste repremiere.

Five out of six stars from the Berlingske:

The very brief review indicates that Charles Andersen stepped into the role of Benvolio in the 2nd act when Alexander Staeger became indisposed (not sure from this article whether he was sick or injured...)

David Amzallag has posted a series of almost 100 images from the first cast of Romeo and Juliet: http://www.blueballet.net/RomeoandJuliet_CM/index.html


I wanted to point out a few that I find particularly emotional or memorable.

#11 - I'm not wild about the costumes in this version of R&J, but I love the colours in this image. It's also a testament to the talents of these three guys that they are so beautifully positioned, especially Kloborg and Andersen (center and right).

#20 - Morten Eggert has always been one of my favorite dancers because he never gives less than 110% onstage and because he is one the finest actor-dancers still dancing today. I love the way he has his head completely turned so you get a perfect profile. And his position is so crisp that the camera catches it as if was perfectly still.

#23 There's something about her position and the angles formed by the shadows of the corps in the background.

#28 In this image there's such a beautiful mix of extension and relaxation. Kloborg almost looks as if he could stay there forever and there's almost no visible strain. Plus you see can why I always though he got the perfect blend of his parents' dance genes.

#46 The colour here is eye catching - her red cloak against his blue and white. And the other dancers and the background caught in an almost sepia tint so Romeo and Juliet stand out in their vivid colours.

#48 Mads Blangstrup is one my favourite dancers, though his dancing can be hot and cold. Seeing him as James in La Sylphide is tops on my 'must do' lists for ballet. And here you can catch a glimpse of his ability to capture emotion.

#51-52 More of Morten Eggert - the expression here is so gripping, so powerful. After having seen the RDB at their best, it's hard to be satisfied by the limp mime that so many American companies put out.

#72 Now that takes strong abs!
