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.
