ROMEO AND JULIET

4 posts in this topic

THE DANCING TIMES, Aug. issue, reports that: “The Peter Schaufuss Ballet will dance a chamber version of Sir Frederick Ashton’s 'Romeo and Juliet' this autumn at venues across Denmark.”

And adds: “The new production has its premiere at the Aarhus Musik Teater, Denmark on September 24. The tour continues until October 30. See schaufuss.com for details.”

A quick look at the website offers no substantial details so far as I could tell. That is no information on just who is overseeing this “chamber version” and who is responsible for the designs, etc.

Any information from any quarter would be greatly appreciated.

coincidentally this somewhat beaten-up cover of a copy of THE SATURDAY REVIEW shows this photo, which i don't recall seeing before, from the original staging.

From the Aarhus theatre's site, it appears that Schaufuss is doing a modern-dress version - there are some photos but whether they're of the actual production I don't know. The text states very clearly that Schaufuss owns the rights to the ballet so I assume he's setting it himself - if not, who?

thanks, Jane.

a number of correspondents have noted that Schaufuss owns the ballet's rights.

i had forgotten that.

i guess that answers many questions.
