Julia & Julia is inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy, but through the love of two women it glides to mirror the barriers that during the course of time have destroyed and disgraced some of the most beautiful human feelings. Dance drama by Lindfors is thus another link in the chain of impossible loves. Prokofiev’s powerful music for ballet, newly arranged by Lauri Mäntysaari, lifts the drama off the ground and carries the story all the way from the streets of Verona to today’s sore points.
