“The power of Maillot’s production, and this cast in particular, is the emotional impact. As an audience member you feel the roller coaster from ecstasy to sorrow. Even though it’s tragic, it’s too achingly beautiful to look away.”

Mariko Nagashima, Seattle Dances

“This cinematic production was undergirded with minimal yet effective set pieces and costumes that made our heroine and hero stand out.  Certainly this production could not have been at the level it was without the mighty PNB Orchestra playing Prokofiev’s score under the watchful eye and baton of Emil de Cou.”

Dean Speer, CriticalDance.org

“The drama is appropriately complimented by a muted and inventive set (designed by Ernest Pignon-Ernest) of white panels that shift and move to frame each scene, and a ramp protruding down to centre stage that serves multiple purposes – as a bed, as Juliette’s balcony – and adds depth and interest to the scene.”

Pia Lo, bachtrack.com

“[…]proud, affectionate and detailed phrasing of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra. Emil de Cou, conducting both performances, shaped the score superbly.”

Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

“Pantastico and Moore danced as if possessed by love, perpetually interwoven in what seemed like the movement equivalent of finishing each other’s sentences.

Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
