@isoldamontero: Oh my god! That last scene of Romeo and Juliet is simply stunning

@sarahludford: Loving the @TheRoyalBallet ’s Romeo & Juliet on Youtube. These broadcasts are hugely wetting my appetite for a physical return to Covent Garden as well as other venues

@chrisrhydderch: Absolutely breathtaking performance of Romeo & Juliet over on the @RoyalOperaHouse's YouTube tonight. Bravo Yasmine, Matthew, @balletboy09 and ALL the Royal Ballet Company #OurHouseToYourHouse

@marionjones100: These two are the most adorable Romeo and Juliet. That balcony scene was heaven.

@moonbootica: MacMillan's ballet "Romeo and Juliet" remains my favourite version, I literally cannot watch any other production, to me it is the definitive vision of Shakespeare's verse put to dance #OurHouseToYourHouse

@philjardine01: Beautiful production from @TheRoyalBallet of Romeo and Juliet being live streamed tonight. One of the nice things thats come out of this is how culture has been made much more accessible and importantly free to all. I hope this is something we can find a way of doing longer term
