This film is the fames Royal Ballet production of Romeo and Juliet. This historical performance stars Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev as the quintessential stage lovers. It captures the greatest dance partnership of our century at the peak of their careers. Fonteyn and Nureyev's performance has been critically hailed as "perfection of movement which epitomizes the freedom that lies beyond technical mastery. It expresses itself as poetic lyricism." Romeo and Juliet features the music of Serge Prokofiev; a work which has been recognized as the first great full-length ballet score since Tchaikowsky's classics. The choreography of Kenneth MacMillan is acknowledged as the reason for the ballet's successful transfer to the film medium. John Lanchbery conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. It is a film for lovers of ballet and romantics alike. 125 mins. (1966) DVD-Region 1
