5-6 July 2005. In Romeo and Juliet, choreography by Jean Christophe Maillot, music by Prokofiev. From the tragic story of the lovers from Verona, Maillot has retained only the working plan and the principal characters. Rather than focusing on the themes of political-social opposition between the two feuding clans, this "Romeo and Juliet" highlights the dualities and ambiguities of adolescence. The painter Ernest Pignon-Ernest has created a decor marked by transparency and lightness: the luminous white panels are resolutely modern and abstract, and all but a hint of the Renaissance is banished from the stage.
