DVD + Blu-Ray: Romeo & Juliet - San Francisco Ballet

From grand spectacle to poignant close-ups, experience Tomasson’s bravura interpretation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet like you’ve never seen it before.

With passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and a celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, San Francisco Ballet’s passionate retelling of the Bard’s greatest tragedy has packed houses around the world. Romeo & Juliet is one of the Company’s most popular and widely toured ballets and has been seen by more than 200,000 people since it premiered in 1994. Choreographed by Helgi Tomasson, with sets and costumes by Jens-Jacob Worsaae, this visually stunning production and the brilliant dancers of SF Ballet bring this powerful and touching tragedy – and Renaissance-era Verona – vividly to life. “Tomasson lifts Shakespeare’s complex and familiar language off the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography that is visceral, fresh, and ultimately sublime” (Huffington Post).
