"Romeo and Juliet by The Bolshoi Ballet"
This is from the Bolshoi Ballet's production of Romeo and Juliet. Nina Ananiashvili is a Juliet like I've never seen in the ballet, and rarely in the theater. She takes the art of dancing actress to new heights of expression. Her emotions are as powerful as her flawless technique. She's the capricious fourteen year old, and blindly in love. She seems lighter than air as she soars in joy, while we are transfixed by the desperation she feels at abandoning her family for Romeo. There's no doubt about her decision, though, however painful it will be. At the end, she's crushed with her final act of desperation. Andrei Uvarov's Romeo does things I've never seen a danseur do. He jumps high and leaps like the girls, except higher and with much more power. He's smooth as silk and the two together are like one.
