Info for Romeo and Juliet: Beyond Words



This spectacular recording of the music used in the film Romeo & Juliet - Beyond Words features extended highlights from Sergei Prokofiev's iconic score. In their first studio recording in over 15 years the award-winning Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, conducted by the Music Director of The Royal Ballet, Koen Kessels, play as to the manner born in this thrilling performance.

Starring Francesca Hayward, William Bracewell and a host of The Royal Ballet’s finest dancers, Kenneth MacMillan’s iconic ballet is brought to life in this special film, shot on location by the Emmy Award-winning pairing of Michael Nunn and William Trevitt.

Highlighting the essence of MacMillan’s world-renowned choreography, Nunn and Trevitt’s Romeo and Juliet: Beyond Words takes viewers into the action with a striking intimacy. Through detailed portrayals by The Royal Ballet dancers, audiences come to know Shakespeare’s iconic tale as a gripping story through an audacious experience that is by turn epic and intimate. With the story presented in a ground-breaking new light, the film captures the extraordinary performances that have earned The Royal Ballet the reputation of producing the greatest actor-dancers in the world, and their artistry pays tribute to a production that is internationally recognised as the zenith of dance storytelling.

"It reveals Hayward both as a luminous screen presence and as an astonishingly lyrical, heartfelt Juliet, a dancer who illuminates the traditional steps and makes them live and breathe." (The Times)

"Exciting, romantic, tragic. Convincing as a ballet and as a drama. A vibrant, up-close take on one of The Royal Ballet's best-loved dramas." (Lyndsey Winship, THE GUARDIAN)

"Fresh and dynamic - there is a breathless immediacy to this. The Royal Ballet’s ensemble playing is rich in detail and the leading roles are cast to the hilt." (Louise Levene, THE FINANCIAL TIMES)
