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 ballet was three acts with engaging performances, vibrant costumes and backdrops, captivating music and of course, talented dancers.  The feuding Montagues and Capulets was easily one of our favorite scenes. The renowned John Cranko choreographed each scene with acute attention to detail; each dance capturing the audience's full attention. Alongside Cranko was the very gifted Gavriel Heine who conducted the music of Sergei Prokofiev that adorned each performance and helped tell this emotional, romantic tragedy.

Be sure to get your ticket to this vibrant storytelling of Romeo & Juliet before the last performance.  It will make for the perfect boston evening shared with friends, family and loved ones!
