Opening Night of Romeo & Juliet at the Boston Opera House

Boston Ballet Press Photos Last Thursday we attended opening night of Boston Ballet's Romeo & Juliet at the Boston Opera House . It was a beautiful reenactment of the Shakespearean classic, demonstrating the power of love and it many forms.

The renowned John Cranko choreographed each scene with acute attention to detail; each dance capturing the audience's full attention.

Last week we made the trip to visit a number of exciting sites and attractions in the most beautiful region of Massachusetts. The Berkshires are the southern continuation of Vermont's Green Mountains, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and quaint towns. We stayed at the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge which is around 2.5 hours outside of Boston.

We bought pasta and fresh cookies made from the grains grown on the farm. Our next stop o
