This is ballet as you’ve never seen it before. Award-winning filmmakers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt ( A.K.A BalletBoyz) have brought Sir Kenneth MacMillain’s Romeo and Juliet to life in this full-length cinematic drama. Filmed on location, Shakespeare’s iconic love story becomes a brilliant fusion of music, theater, ballet, and costume drama. Set to The Royal Opera House Orchestra’s exclusive recording of Prokofiev’s original score, and starring principals Francesca Hayward and William Bracewell in the title roles, this film is a groundbreaking showcase of Royal Ballet talent.
