Courtesy of Opus Arte, we have five copies of Romeo and Juliet: Beyond Words on DVD to give away as competition prizes. The film stars Royal Ballet principal Francesca Hayward as Juliet and first soloist William Bracewell as Romeo, making his much-anticipated debut in the role. Directed and produced by Michael Nunn and William Trevitt of the BalletBoyz, this interpretation of Romeo and Juliet showcases Kenneth MacMillan’s ballet in a fresh and dynamic way. Fusing The Royal Ballet’s heritage with the BalletBoyz’ signature style, and filmed on location at the Korda Studios in Budapest, Romeo and Juliet: Beyond Words was screened in cinemas in November 2019.
This DVD and Blu-ray release also includes exclusive extra features, including The Making of Romeo and Juliet, as well as a cast and crew Q&A, offering viewers a unique glimpse behind the camera. To win a copy, simply send us the answer to the following question by February 1, 2021: Who composed the music to Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet? Entries can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
