On Tuesday, it was Valentine’s Day. So we went to Ballet-Met in Columbus to see Romeo and Juliet’s ballet. 

The Ohio Theatre is a performing arts center located at 39 E. State Street in Columbus, Ohio. Known as the « Official Theatre of the State of Ohio », the historic 1928 movie palace was saved from demolition in 1969 and completely restored. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977. The executive director is Bill Connor.

Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by the famous English writer, William Shakespeare (15641616). The story is about two young lovers during the middle age. The scene took place in Verona, in Italy. The two families, Capulet, the Juliet’s family and Montague, the Romeo’s family were enemies for a long time.

But one day, during the Capulet’s ball, Romeo met Juliet and the two teenagers fell in love.  Romeo stayed after the party under Juliet‘s balcony, and the two used this romantic meeting to plan their marriage. But her parents wanted her to get married with another man.

Later Romeo also got run out of Verona because he killed Juliet’s cousin Tybalt because Tybalt killed Romeo’s friend Mercutio. Juliet wanted to take poison to appear dead to her parents. And she sent a message to Romeo to tell him that she won’t be dead.  Unfortunately Romeo didn’t get the message, went to the vault, thought Juliet was dead, killed himself, shortly after Juliet woke up and she killed herself too because she couldn’t live without Romeo.

It was amazing to see how the dancers could reprensent a play just with dance and without any speech.
