Selected Vue cinemas will screen the Royal Ballet’s romantic production of Romeo and Juliet, at 7.15pm on 22nd March, recorded live from London’s Royal Opera House.
Romeo and Juliet tells the tragic story of two star-crossed lovers from Verona. Despite the wishes of their rival families, the couple embark on a love affair as their relatives go to war. With the realisation that their families will never accept them, the lovers marry in secret, but are torn apart by a series of events, that ultimately result in their deaths.
With choreography based around Shakespeare’s famous play, the full Company of The Royal Ballet perform in rich period costumes, drawing audiences into the intense drama of this ballet classic. The powerful sound of Prokofiev’s haunting music is captured on Vue’s Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound to ensure the best audio experience. Moreover, the dancers and the beautiful Elizabethan stage design are recorded from various points across the auditorium and broadcasted on a High Definition screen, giving cinema-goers the best seats in the house.
Mark De Quervain, Sales and Marketing Director of Vue Entertainment, comments: “Romeo and Juliet gives cinema-goers a unique opportunity to experience one of the most enduring and romantically tragic tales of all time. This revival offers romance as well as action-packed encounters in crystal-clear, high definition, making it a must-see for all newcomers and ballet fans alike. The creative sets and powerful soundtrack are also showcased at their best, giving cinema goers a fantastic experience of this epic love story.”
