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—but its countless adaptations haven’t hurt. In Oregon Ballet Theatre’s take on the piece, choreography designed by James Canfield gives the actions of the titular lovers a poetic grace that befits both their age and their innocence. Throughout, every insult, sword fight, and stolen kiss comes sonically to life courtesy of Sergei Prokofiev, praised throughout history for his emotionally vivid compositions
Oregon Ballet Theatre
Since debuting in 1989, the Oregon Ballet Theatre has built its reputation on two seemingly opposed elements: strict balletic classicism and newly commissioned works. Now the theatre enters a new era under artistic director Kevin Irving, whose background spans both classical and contemporary performances. As a dancer, Irving appeared with scores of companies, including the Alvin Ailey Training Ensemble and Elisa Monte Dance Company. In 1994, he retired from the stage to take a position as ballet master and head of the artistic department with Nacho Duato’s Compañia Nacional de Danza in Spain. Irving looks to take the Oregon Ballet Theatre to new heights, riffing off rave reviews from the Oregonian's Bob Hicks, who wrote that the theatre's Swan Lake is "a work of sumptuous geometric balances that echo the story's mirror-image theme."
