Pennsylvania Ballet in a new (to us) Romeo & Juliet
For a ballet with a woman’s name in the title, MacMillan’s Romeo & Juliet focuses heavily on the men. But, Lillian DiPiazza as Juliet was the highlight of Thursday night’s premiere, especially her range of emotions. Her Juliet is a young teen, who still plays with dolls and hides behind her nurse’s skirts, yet grows up in front of our eyes when she meets Sterling Baca’s Romeo.
