NBOC: Ratmansky's Romeo and Juliet

2 posts in this topic

Has anyone else here seen a performance? I attended today (Nov. 20), in the middle of the Toronto Santa Claus parade. Would be interested to hear what others have to say. My daughter went last night - her thoughts essentially: "too much fabric." (this is literally, not figuratively). I had to see it to really understand. She was quite on the money I thought. There were pieces to enjoy here, but the set and costumes were not a high point for me - ok, quite the contrary. In some instances these really took us away from the choreography.

Of course there were places where the steps were faster and perhaps more "current" with more recent works, but on the whole I'm not sure I'm ready to give up on Cranko just yet. Then again, perhaps this version will mature over time.

I saw your thread but couldn't reply because I didn't get a chance to see the performance. However, since they just announced that they would tour Ottawa next year, I'm definitely going! (So easy to get my subscription money...)
