Romeo and Juliet

While we were in London we went to see the Romeo and Juliet ballet at the Royal Opera House. It was one of the most beautiful ballets I have ever seen. To me, the Romeo and Juliet story is very macabre and lovely. I have always loved this story and although it has a sad ending it is still one of my all time favorites. One of my favorite movies is the old school one with Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. I remember seeing that film as a kid and falling head over heels for Leonard Whiting. I also really dig the Baz Luhrmann version of the film from the 90's. I use to want to be Claire Danes and have cool angel wings like hers in the film. It was a dream come true to be able to see the ballet with my husband. We had a nice dinner with complete with champagne. It was one of most amazing venues I have ever been at. To me it will always be such a timeless, perfect, tragic tale.
