‘Romeo and Juliet’. Houston Ballet

30 June 2016, State Theatre, Victorian Arts Centre, Melbourne

My review of Stanton Welch’s spectacular Romeo and Juliet for Houston Ballet is now available on DanceTabs at this link. In relation to the DanceTabs review, below is an image of Karina Gonzalez as Juliet and Jessica Collado as Lady Capulet showing the ‘exclamation mark’ arabesque I mention in the review.

While in the review I didn’t go into much detail about the children who appeared in the work (courtesy of the Australian Ballet School), I am am curious to know the name of the fair-haired boy who led the Blind Man’s Buff game, and who appeared whenever children were required. He had such charisma for someone so young.

One thought on “‘Romeo and Juliet’. Houston Ballet

  1. I am reliably informed that there were two casts for the role of the leading child in the Houston Ballet production of R & J: dark-haired Matthew Kennedy and fair-haired Noah Follows. I saw only one cast and assume I saw Noah Follows.
