A review of the Royal Ballet by Lyndsey Winship in The Guardian.


Despite Romeo and Juliet being one of the Royal Ballet’s most performed works, this production, especially opening night, feels fresh and full of new detail. Everywhere you look in the crowd scenes there are a hundred tiny plots going on and the supporting casts are fantastic across the board: Matthew Ball’s Tybalt, itching for a fight and fiercely clashing swords with Corrales; Nathalie Harrison’s Lady Capulet giving a desperate show of grief after Tybalt’s death; Luca Acri an impertinent Mercutio set at high speed; and when Marcelino Sambé takes the same role, his decisive dancing is such a whirlwind it almost blows the corps de ballet out of his way.
