Houston Ballet Romeo and Juliet reviews

Two wildly divergent views of Ben Stevenson's Romeo and Juliet:

Adam Castaneda,  Houston Press
" one would be hard-pressed to find someone who isn't convinced of the passion in Stevenson's choreography. The pas de deux, or classical duet, in Act I and Act III, are so lush, so full-bodied, they appear to be almost Modern. Opening night's performance saw the birth of a new star in Joseph Walsh's portrayal of Romeo. The recently promoted principal seems to have been born for the seminal role"

"
Theodore Bale, Houston Herald : "BEST LEFT TO HISTORY

It's time to demand more of the Houston Ballet than Stevenson's tired, limp Romeo and Juliet"
