  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This classic production has been a regular part of the Royal Ballets offerings for a long time now and its easy to see why ie its a brilliant production.

The quality of the picture and sound on this blu ray I cannot imagine being bettered. Stunning.

Shakespeare for the MTV generation

  • Conclusion: This Version of the classic Shakespeare story is like a firecracker exploding in your face. It oozes a certain arrogance and energy that is not normally associated with "The Most Romantic Story ever told" Just watched this again after 13 years on DVD., and it still easily holds up. The acting was top notch, showing Di Caprio's potential before he became a Superstar.
