Romeo and Juliet,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romeo And Juliet: The Royal Ballet (Gruzin) [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
An excellent production by a top company, Acosta and Rojo a splendidly lyrical and convincing partnership in the lead roles. The corps de ballet all give effective background performances as retainers and servants, and the company's strength in the character roles well in evidence. And technically excellent thoughout, as always.
I personally was left unmoved by the ending, not a reaction shared by the live audience, so possibly the fault is mine. The camera work is occasionally irritating, giving close ups of an individual performer when I would have liked to see the whole stage.
I would certainly recommend this to any fellow ballet fan building a collection.
