Shakespeare’s most recognized tale of star-crossed lovers is coming to the big screen. At least in England. For one precious night only – December 16, 2019 – audiences can see Michael Nunn and William Trevitt’s Romeo and Juliet: Beyond Words featuring The Royal Ballet dancers William Bracewell and Francesca Hayward dancing the title characters. Kenneth MacMillan’s beloved version of this literary and ballet classic, Romeo and Juliet, will be set to an abridged (90-minute) version of Sergei Prokofiev’s original 1938 score recorded by the Orchestra of The Royal Opera House. This sounds like an overall sensory treat that I hope makes it to this side of the Atlantic.
