Description
Brilliant dancing by the leads (Pascale Doye as Juliet and Nicolas Dufloux as Romeo) and the expressionistic choreography and set design made this 1992 Opéra de Lyon production an unforgettable interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedy.

"[Conductor Kent] Nagano's approach to the score is incendiary, with palpable electricity lighting up the inherent darkness.... A great love story [is] stripped naked and then weighed down by a post-war, almost apocalyptic, view of a Europe torn apart by hatred and ethnic cleansing.... Preljocaj agreed to create this production for Lyon's Opera on the condition that he could use a considerably foreshortened score ... so the music would sit more comfortably with a ballet told as a political and emotional parable.... Romeo and Juliet have a swallow-like freedom, whereas the guards and nurses have an ... almost mechanical presence.... Nagano grips the score with a vice, and the playing is both lithe and exciting.... A superb production."—Musicweb International
