Romeo and Juliet: Beyond Words is a drama feature film created by the International Emmy Award-winning Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, starring the dancers of The Royal Ballet in Kenneth MacMillans classic ballet and set to Sergei Prokofievs original score. Highlighting the essence of MacMillans world-renowned choreography, Nunn and Trevitts Romeo and Juliet takes viewers into the action with a striking intimacy. Through detailed portrayals by The Royal Ballet dancers, audiences come to know Shakespeares 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 the dance storytelling. Re-imagined for the camera by Nunn and Trevitt, the film delivers a new realism and appeals to a global audience of theatre, dance and film fans alike. This is the story everyone knows, told in a language everyone understands, presented in a way never seen before.
