  • Summary: I remember watching this in high school English class - required viewing, but not entirely bad. As far as adapting Shakespeare goes, I'll take this over most of the "updated" versions.

Prokofiev: Romeo & Juliet

  • Excerpt: I really thought this was a DVD is BD clothing. If you have watched other ballet BDs from the ROH for example, you will be terribly disappointed in the technical quality of this. There is a lot of grain, the picture is often blurred though once or twice it become close to what we expect from BD.

  • Excerpt: It is hard to fault this disc other than in the extras area where none are offered. An interview with the excellent dancers would have been nice. The dancing is always very good and in most cases quite outstanding.

"One of the greats!"

  • Summary: A favorite of mine since it came out. I can't fault it. Filmed in old locations in Italy, in period costumes; it looks real. The acting is good throughout. I give this movie top marks.

"This is the best adaptation, unsurpassed"

  • Summary: A beautiful stunning film, heartbreak, true love danger, this film takes you on a roller-coaster of emotions with such powerful dialogue and superb acting. There has not been a better version in my opinion. This is a definite for the film library.
