Tulsa Ballet: Romeo and Juliet
See how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!
Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl defy their families to be together: it’s not an unfamiliar story. What sets Romeo & Juliet apart is what happens next. It’s an ending that defies spoiler warnings—Sergei Prokofiev, Leonardo DiCaprio, and high-school literature teachers everywhere have made the finale famous—but knowing what’s coming doesn’t make it any less devastating. The double-suicide, brought about by bad luck, worse timing, and some faulty communication, becomes all the more tragic when you consider their ages: Juliet is just under 14, Romeo not much older.
That heartbreak, and the lush language that precedes it, is exactly what makes the play so unforgettable—and its countless adaptations only add to that mystique. Choreography from the internationally celebrated Edwaard Liang and artist direction from Marcello Angelini, Artistic Director for 21 years at Tulsa Ballet, complement a stage that puts the leads front and center. Throughout the performance, every fight, every insult, and every stolen kiss comes to life thanks to a score from Prokofiev, one of the 20th century’s most emotionally grounded composers.
