Romeo + Juliet now out on DVD and Blu-ray

18th August 2020

We are delighted to announce that Matthew Bourne’s Romeo + Juliet is released on DVD and Blu-ray on the 25 August. This is our fourth Matthew Bourne dance release and follows Swan Lake, The Car Man and Cinderella. All productions were released for the first time as digital titles in May.

The DVD and Blu-ray editions of Romeo + Juliet include an exclusive The Making of .. film featuring interviews with Matthew Bourne; cast members Paris Fitzpatrick, Cordelia Braithwaite, and Daisy May Kemp; associate director Etta Murfitt; and young associate choreographer, Arielle Smith.

Matthew Bourne’s Romeo + Juliet is a passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict. Set in the not-too-distant future in ‘The Verona Institute’ and mysteriously confined against their will by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirits, our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together.

A timeless story about repressed emotions and teenage discovery is no better told than by the young’, said Matthew Bourne. Inspired by this and as part of New Adventures’ ambition to support the next generation of on-stage talent, Romeo & Juliet featured the finest emerging male and female dancers from around the UK. Bursting with youth, vitality, and Bourne’s trademark storytelling, six young cast members were chosen following a nationwide audition tour and they performed alongside the New Adventures company at each theatre venue.

You can purchase Romeo + Juliet alongside our other Matthew Bourne titles via the Illuminations Film Shop.
