Aperçu

Alexei Ratmansky created his stunning adaptation of Romeo and Juliet for The National Ballet of Canada in 2011 to open the company’s 60th anniversary season. The production is true to the colour and character of 16th century Verona and jampacked with dancing – fast footwork, expressive pas de deux and gorgeous ensemble pieces blending classical and folkdance elements. Romeo and Juliet is pure Ratmansky, a thoughtful and visually striking revival of one of ballet’s great narrative works.

Romeo and Juliet Trailer

L’histoire

Verona is the site of a longstanding feud between two families, the Montagues and the Capulets. Romeo, a Montague, falls in love with Juliet, a forbidden Capulet, and they marry in secret. When Juliet learns she is pledged in marriage to someone else, she takes a sleeping potion to convince her family she is dead. She sends news of her plan to Romeo but he does not receive it. Believing Juliet dead, Romeo takes his own life and she, on waking, takes hers, joining him in death.

Critiques

“A Romeo and Juliet for our time” —Los Angeles Register

“Of the six versions I have seen by choreographers alive today, this is much the best.” —The New York Times

“A must-see… Ratmansky’s greatness lies in his ability to mirror music in dance. The emotional arc of the characters is cunningly shown in movement. In fact, the music and the dance seem inseparable.” —The Globe and Mail
