Lovely Death: Romance, sword fights, the iconic balcony scene, a tiny bit of light comedy, an opulent masquerade ball, and (depending on the staging) some fairly steamy love scenes…whether in traditional romantic ballet or a more contemporary Prokoviev version, Romeo & Juliet danced on stage takes off from the high school literature class drudgery everyone recalls, and becomes this colorful — then incredibly dark — treat for the eyes and ears. But for all the loveliness, how does anyone manage not to get a lump in their throat or a tear in their eye during the climactic death scenes? Young love is a beautiful thing. Doomed love is another thing altogether. “I will kiss they lips; Haply some poison yet doth hang on them…O happy dagger! This is my sheath; there rust, and let me die.”

Hey guys, guess what I just found:

OLGA SMIRNOVA’S DYING SWAN.

So, she’s gorgeous, but the beginning felt a little stilted and too lively for my taste, but I like the end. Let me know what you think!!!

I will never get over the fact that Ned literally set a truck on fire to distract the grave diggers.
