ROMEO & JULIET ON DVD
STARRING CARLOS ACOSTA

Following his awesome Spartacus DVD on Decca, ballet superstar Carlos Acosta dances as one of the two ‘starcrossed lovers’ in Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy—presented in the classic Kenneth MacMillan choreography and beautifully staged by the Royal Ballet.

In this perennial favourite, Carlos Acosta dances alongside his regular partner, the Spanish ballerina, Tamara Rojo—a celebrated stage partnership which currently has no equal. The drama of the doomed lovers is set against the ravishing sets and costumes designs of Nicholas Georgiadis.
