Romeo & Juliet

I had the opportunity last night to photograph the dress rehearsal for the Carolina Ballet presentation of "Romeo & Juliet" at Fletcher Opera Theater, Raleigh, North Carolina. The well known Shakespeare tragedy is set to the beloved and well music of Sergei Prokofiev. Carolina Ballet's presentation choreographed by Robert Weiss is stunning with a large cast, superb costumes and Margeret Severin-Hanson and Marcelo Martinez wonderfully portray the characters of the archetypal young lovers. Performances start tonight and run through until May 9th. Enjoy these preview pictures and don't miss the real thing!
