ROMEO AND JULIET at Birmingham Hippodrome

April 9, 2016

ROMEO AND JULIET was the very first ballet I saw at the Theatre Royal in Brighton back in the 1980’s. The exciting sword fighting scenes amazed me and my interest in ballet was born.

This incredible production by Birmingham Royal Ballet was spectacular in set and costume, was superlative in dance and sumptuous with the performance of the Prokofiev score.

Joseph Caley was Romeo and Momoka Hirata was Juliet. Their performances were quite stunning and particularly the scene when Romeo discovers that Juliet has died. The choreography and its execution created a deep emotional response within me that I have never experienced before in any presentation of this story before. Such is the great power to move of great ballet.
