Angel and Alessandra seem perfect for their roles in this recording of Romeo and Juliet, with Angel's boyish charm and Alessandra's fluid grace coming together beautifully in this powerful ballet. Prokofiev's score is, needless to say, amazing, and the dancing is excellent, for the most part. Apart from Angel, though, the male dancers are severely lacking in technique; they have tricks coming out the wazoo, but it would be nice to see someone actually pointing their feet. The girls, on the other hand, are all superb dancers, and of course Angel and Alessandra are simply amazing. The balcony scene pas de deux is absolutely stunning. Unless you are a severe ballet critic, the flaws of the male soloists and corps are easily made up for in the beauty of the score, costumes, and set and in the well-played roles of Angel and Alessandra. One of my favorite recordings of any ballet.
