By Popular Demand, Atlanta Ballet Presents the Encore of Jean-Christophe Maillot’s “Roméo et Juliette”
Ballet-Dance Magazine described it as “quirky, artistically innovative, intelligent, intellectually and visually stimulating, endlessly interesting.” The Seattle Times said “It’s a remarkable work…like no ‘Romeo and Juliet’ ballet you’ve seen before: It’s intricate, often achingly beautiful, and never simply pretty.”
Atlanta Ballet presented the Southeastern premiere in February 2014. The emotional, cinematic work was described by ArtsATL as “smart, beautiful, and epic,” and The Backstage Beat deemed it “spectacular.” ‘Romeo et Juliette’ is a triumph for Atlanta
Ballet,” said Atlanta arts writer Cynthia Bond Perry in a review for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “With choreographer JeanChristophe Maillot’s production, the company’s quest to build a sleek artistic profile is more fully realized than ever…Atlanta Ballet has again surpassed itself.”
The coveted roles of Romeo and Juliette will be reprised by Atlanta Ballet company dancers Christian Clark and Alessa Rogers, respectively.
