Of the scenes of Romeo and Juliet I’ve watched, this was my favorite. The way Juliet completely trusts her partner is evident, and conveys how completely Juliet has fallen in love with him. The two dance beautifully to the music, with perfect musicaility; the partnering sections are my favorite. They appear so effortless and graceful, even though I’m sure it is extremely difficult. I think the lighting is perfect for this scene, as it shows the gloominess of the ballet as a whole, as well as for this particular scene. It ensures the audience is aware of the correspondence occurring between Romeo and Juliet, and that it is not one of happiness. The bed, though, its a bit distracting to me. I know it sets the setting of this scene, but I feel like it could be smaller and less prominent as it was distracting me from the dancers.
