Details

This celebrated 1966 production features mesmerisingly vulnerable performances from both Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn as Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers. Four years into their joint tenure at the Royal Ballet (Nureyev as Principal Dancer and Fonteyn as Prima Ballerina), this production unequivocally captures on film one of the greatest artistic partnerships of the twentieth century. A ballet masterpiece on many levels from Prokofiev's stunning score to Kenneth MacMillan's exquisite choreography Romeo & Juliet is presented here as a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
