I love this ballet so much!!!! The music is fantastic and the story makes it so breathtaking to watch. Romeo and Juliet is actually my very first ballet in which I danced as a soloist, with the Hong Kong Ballet, when I was around ten. I was doing the leader of Montaigu's children and I had a solo at the beginning of act 2.
Having seen many others adaptations of this Shakespeare tragedy, (musical, film...etc) I thought while watching from the wings, that art is so beautiful! Suddenly, I felt wonderful being part of those who bring this joy to the audience.
