Looking for a way to get your romance on? Or ignite some smoldering embers of love? There’s perhaps no greater romance than the star-crossed love ofRomeo and Juliet. Now set it to the choreography of classical ballet. Sure, Shakespeare’s tale of young passion, generational familial warfare, selfless helpmeets, and fake deaths gone awry has plenty of drama. And, of course, everyone dies in the end. But French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot’s two-act version, with 50 dancers filling the stage, promises plenty of filmy tulle, wispy choreography, heart-rending emotion, and pulse-pounding action set to Prokofiev’s iconic score.
