ballet building

As the second half of my century begins, I have a few resolutions, more Paris, more ballet and maybe no bread (unless in Paris). This weekend I was able to keep one resolve and see Pacific Northwest’s production of Romeo et Juliette.  From a design point of view it is very conversation worthy; a Corbusian set design only an architect could love, tailored costumes of Japanese and Fortuny decent and a overture that was interesting in its functional use as an opening credits sequence. The dancing, good, but I did feel the ballet dancers needed a little more weight or modern training to their interpretations and the casting for the matinée was uneven. Nevertheless, happy to see innovative theater from a non-NYC construct.
