It said she gave "the most appro- priate expression of Juliet with ielicate dancing and stable and beautiful form." The production opened in the Festival Theatre in downtown Osaka Sunday night before a capacity audience and continues through Tuesday night. Many of the Japanese newspapers waited until Tues- day before publishing reviews. Asahi Shimbun also ap- plauded the performance of Sur- mejan, and added that Yves Cousineau as Tybalt and plenn Gilmour as Mercutiq "played excellent supporting roles1."

Seventy members of the Osaka Philharmonic Orchestra are providing the music. The or- chestra drew special praise from ballet company spokesmen for its part in the success of Romeo and Juliet.
