  • Pre-order your copy today, released 27 November 2020

    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.

    Beyond Words: "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
