If the rest of the #Mariinsky performances are anywhere as good as the Shklyarov/Vishneva R&J, my head is likely to explode in 2 weeks or so

Larovsky's 'Romeo & Juliet' often verges on pantomime but Vishneva/Shklyarov dazzle (& break hearts) as the star-crossed lovers. #Mariinsky

Act I of Romeo and Juliet may have the best music, but @mariinskyen dancing in Act II amazing. Tybalt's death just stunning.

For all that this prod of R & J seems stilted compared w Macmillan, Shklyarov is one of the most natural Romeo I've ever seen @mariinskyen

Shklyarov is deffo one of the world’s best Romeos (well, he IS Romeo). And few can rival Vishneva when it comes to the drama. #Mariinsky
