Another Juliet! Another Romeo!


I’ve seen four versions of the ballet Romeo and Juliet — the Kenneth MacMillan choreography for American Ballet Theatre, the Cranko version for the Stuttgart, also on the Joffrey Ballet, Rudolph Nureyev’s for the Paris Opera Ballet, and Septime Webre’s choreography, now at Washington Ballet but originally for American Repertory Ballet. Nureyev and Webre are tied for my favorites so far, but I’m eager to see number five. American Repertory Ballet premieres Douglas Martin’s Romeo and Juliet on Friday, October 11, with orchestra. Here’s my article in this week’s U.S. 1
