"ROMEO AND JULIET" chor. MAILLOT, with the participation of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Igor Dronov
Based on the assumption that everyone is familiar with Romeo and Juliet, Jean-Christophe Maillot took a choreographic approach that avoids paraphrasing Shakespeare's literary masterpiece. Rather than retrace the rift between the Capulets and Montagues to its tragic denouement, the choreographer rewrites the play from an original perspective. The ballet plunges us into the depths of Friar Laurence's soul, a man whose good intentions ultimately provoke the demise of the two lovers.
