“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” - Aristotle
Michael Pote’s lush and romantic composition is based on Tchaikovsky’s "Romeo and Juliet.” It fits in with the mold of the Center X Bach and Beethoven shows, and is a perfect choice for a visually stunning field presentation.
The tragic story of Romeo and Juliet belongs to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. Based on four “acts,” your field show can be a literal interpretation of Shakespeare’s epic poem. “Family Feud” sets the stage in a grand manner. Your audience will be instantly drawn in by the familiar phrases. “Star Cross’d Lovers” deftly sets up all of the interactions between the characters. And how could you forget the famous balcony scene? “Wherefore Art Thou?” brings all of the emotions to a head. “Sealed with a Kiss” pays homage to Romeo’s famous words “And with a kiss I die.” Michael Pote’s rousing ending will leave an emotional impact.
Although “TWO-gether” is based on the Romeo and Juliet story, you and your visual staff have permission to explore romances of all types. You do not need to be literal in your interpretation. There are myriads of famous couples (with both happy and tragic endings) that you are encouraged to use for inspiration.
As with any Center X Productions show, visual concepts can be changed to fit the needs of your group. This show offers many unique musical moments and ideas that would work well with many themes or guard ideas.
