The reason why I choose this particular video was because it was filmed in 1962 yet appears to be exactly like the more recent versions and the version we watched in class. This just goes to show how timeless the ballet is. Centuries have passed and ballet is still an admirable and highly respected art form. I also find it interesting to watch how different dancers adapt the dance to their own particular style. Even though the steps are relatively the same, each dancer puts something personal into their work and shows different emotions. The choreographers and directors also contribute to the different styles that same ballet has, and I really enjoy seeing the variation.
Compared to Romeo and Juliet, this ballet is more lighthearted and comedic. I couldn’t tell you which one I liked better because I enjoy watching them both for different Reasons.
