“Lady Lear,” the last show of Kentucky Shakespeare’s 57th season, opened Wednesday night in Louisville’s Central Park. An audience of more than 500 sat in the unreasonably lovely August evening to watch a bold and exciting production by the Louisville Ballet, created by two of Louisville’s rising stars, Roger Creel and Scott Moore.
There is simply too much to talk about to fit it all here. There’s Creel’s blossoming and rapidly maturing choreography; his razor-sharp editing and adapting of Shakespeare’s story; Moore’s stunning original score; the individual performances of the dancers; and the overall awesomeness of this Kentucky Shakespeare/Louisville Ballet collaboration that extends both their seasons and offers free ballet to anyone who wants to come see it.
It’s a hell of a thing. In short, go see “Lady Lear,” which continues through Aug. 13.
