Nicholas Sheffo
Fulvue Drive-in, July 2016

La Reine Morte (1983 aka The Dead Queen) is a ballet set to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s music and based on the true story of Prince of Portugal Don Pedro, who falls for a woman he secretly marries, only to have it quickly come back to haunt all involved. We’ve seen this kind of tale before, but it works well enough here with choreography by Kader Belarbi and conducted by Koen Kessels. Add a great cast and the Theatre du Capitole and this delivers well in 110 minutes. © 2016 Fulvue Drive-in Read complete review
