Famed for their annual Nutcracker, the acclaimed Rockville Civic Ballet's latest production boasts a trio of dances. The Last Duchess is inspired by an intriguing Robert Browning poem, in which a duke shows off a portrait of his wanton wife, insinuating that he's gotten rid of her for good. Also on the program are the works Saturday Night Social, a fun and entertaining romp set to Aaron Copland's Rodeo, and Danse D'Enesco, a folk dance-influenced piece that's described as bright and fast-moving.

The ballet was enjoyable. Juliet was excellent. She appeared flawless. Romeo less so. I would have liked to see more dancing. Too much time was spent on the villagers hopping around the square. Also the choreography tried to incorporate too may modern elements into the performance. I like my ballet a little more traditional. Overall, with the Goldstar discount, it was well worth it.
