A Corps Dancer Leaps Into His Romeo Debut

On Wednesday afternoon, Aran Bell, at just 19, makes an important debut: as Romeo in Kenneth MacMillan’s production of “Romeo and Juliet.”

Physically, it is demanding, because it’s a full-length ballet, and Romeo is on the stage for the majority of the ballet with lots of partnering.
