A FOOTWORK FILMS PRODUCTION FOR BBC
A brand-new major movie of the greatest love story ever told. With choreographed acting from The Royal Ballet using Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s original choreography, multi-award winning filmmakers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt present Romeo and Juliet in a worldwide first dance movie of Shakespeare's iconic story.
Filmed on location, this breathtaking production captures the beauty, grace and spectacle of MacMillan’s original work. Entirely reimagined for the camera, the film is set to Prokofiev’s extraordinary original score and performed by The Royal Opera House Orchestra recorded exclusively for the film.
By turn epic and intimate, the story comes to life with unprecedented grandeur - merging theatre, ballet, film and costume drama in this groundbreaking cinematic first celebrating the dance storytelling originally evoked by MacMillan and Prokofiev.
