"Romeo and Juliet," Shakespeare's timeless tragedy of young star-crossed lovers, loses none of its passion, fury and romance in its translation to the ballet stage, to a soaring, muscular score by 20th-century Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev. Dancers of London's Royal Ballet, led by William Bracewell and Francesca Hayward in the title roles, perform Kenneth McMillan's dazzling choreography, filmed on opulent, atmospheric sets and locations across Budapest, the capital city of Hungary.
