Marion Oliver McCaw Hall, Seattle – February 5, 2016.
Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Roméo et Juliette tells Shakespeare’s classic story through the emotional journey of its characters.
Maillot created this ballet in 1996 for Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, where he has been artistic director since 1993. The ballet premiered at the Pacific Northwest Ballet in 2008 and was restaged in 2013 and again for this season. This performance reunited the utterly sublime Noelani Pantastico, as Juliet, and James Moore, as Romeo, in these roles which they had danced together in the PNB performances of 2008.
