 DON'T MISS IT! June 5, 2013 By victor saldivar (san antonio, TX) See All My Reviews "THIS VERSION IS VERY WELL DONE. IN ADDITION, THE MODERN SOUND AND IMAGE PROVIDED BY THE BLU-RAY VERSION PUTS YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION. I ENJOY VERY MUCH PREVIOUS, CLASSICAL/FUNDAMENTAL BALLET FILMS OF PROKOFIEV'S R & J, BUT I RECOMMEND YOU DON'T MISS THIS ROYAL OPERA HOUSE ONE." Report Abuse
