We’re thrilled to bring you details of the first cinema screenings of Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet, our latest collaboration with New Adventures and distributors More2Screen. With producer Lucie Conrad and screen director Ross MacGibbon, we recorded this powerful production at Sadler’s Wells in early August – and it debuts in cinemas on 22 October.

As the New Adventures website details:
Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet is a passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic love story. Confined against their will by a society that seeks to divide, our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together.
Bursting with youth, vitality and Matthew Bourne’s trademark storytelling, the UK’s brightest young dance talent join the New Adventures company, with direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne, design by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis and new orchestrations of the Prokofiev score by Terry Davies, played live by the New Adventures Orchestra conducted by Brett Morris.
We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with Matthew Bourne and his company New Adventures. We have released The Car Man and Cinderella on DVD and Blu-ray – and these can be purchased here and here – and earlier this year More2Screen brought to cinemas our co-production with New Adventures, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake. Showings of this continue in Britain and around the world.
