<<  -- 2 --  Robert Anderson    MAXIMUM SENSUALITY

-------------------------------

For the moment it is a question of Romeo and Rosaline, as Angel Corella greets the Veronese morning, comes down the grand steps leading from the ducal palace, and makes music to his love [watch and listen -- chapter 3, 4:06-5:22]. And in Juliet's anteroom it is soon to be a case of Paris and Juliet (Alessandra Ferri), as she scampers round Laura Costa's Nurse, and gradually matures from playful girl to premonitions of womanhood [watch and listen -- chapter 11, 17:36-18:18]. It is during the massive splendour of the Capulet ball that the young couple first glance each other and manage to snatch a brief dance together.
