Romeo et Juliette Ballet
A couple weeks ago, the team and I went to see one of our favorite patients perform with the Pacific Northwest Ballet in it’s rendition of Romeo and Juliet! What a wonderful time we had and how special it was for each of us to see one of our patients preform so beautifully as the lead, Juliet!
Many of you know the story of Romeo and Juliet, two young people who fall in love, despite the conflicts between their families, the Montague’s and the Capulet’s. Although a tragic story, it was beautifully portrayed. What made this story different was that the men and women in the ballet did not use words to tell the story, they used dance. The set was simple, yet the costumes elaborate. The emotions were clearly expressed on the faces of the dancers, and you could tell how hard these people worked on making it perfect. Not one move was out of place.
For much of our staff, this was the first time at the ballet but each of them expressed how much they enjoyed being able to go and how exciting it was so see one of our patients and friends perform so gracefully and beautifully. We look forward to seeing her perform again in the near future, but for now, the PNB is headed to New York City to perform Romeo et Juliette there!
