"Scottish Ballet. Romeo and Juliet."
 
  
It it so good to see Scottish Ballet looking so great.

I LOVED this production by Robert North.
He keeps all the essentials of Cranko and MacMillan and other productions we're more familiar with, and what he adds and adapts seems to only improve on the sense of fluid movement through a more complete telling of the Shakespeare story.

Adam Cooper was a wonderful romeo, and certainly no evidence of losing any of his classical abilities.

The real star of the show was Mia Johansson who was a superb Juliet.
Shes Finnish and performs with Kiel Opera Ballet.
She is tiny and has lovely acting as well as dancing abilities and this role seems just perfect for her.

Should also mention Ersin Aycan - one of the other 'Associte Artists' that Robert North has brought to SB ( Adam and Mia are two of the others )- He was a wonderfully funny and captivating Mercutio.

Sorry to ramble on so. Just so delighted to see the 'local' company in something so good.

It's at Theatre Royal Glasgow all this week and next, then at Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Inverness in September and October.

   Oh Good!

I'm going tomorrow afternoon and will see the same cast. We need some encouragement after SB's & Norths recent performances.

   Carly: I couldn't agree more. What a lovely refreshing production. The colours of the sets and costumes were terrific. Tho Adam had to stoop a bit to partner little Mia Johansson it didn't seem to matter as she was such a lovely Juliet. And the rest of the SB company rose to the occasion. Well done, Robert North. If anybody can get to see it in Edinburgh in October, it's well worth the trip. Have to admit as well that I was well impressed with the Theatre Royal Glasgow. What a lovely building!

   PS: Oh forgot to mention, not a pointe shoe in sight but this led to a lightness and delicacy which only added to the Renaissance-like airyness of the production. Oops, going a bit hyper here, but SB need all the encouragement they can get.
