Choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot‘s Roméo et Juliette (1996) created for Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo in 1996 may not be a new production, but boy does it look swankily danced, and designed, by some stunning dancers in these photos. So we’re going. Maillot has been artistic director of the company since 1993. The ballet is staged to the Sergei Prokofiev score. The brilliant dance photography is by Alice Blangero.
We last saw the company in 2014, at Segerstrom, presenting LAC, their nouveau version of Swan Lake.
