Sophia, have you seen the documentary "Dancer's Dream"? It's very interesting and you can see Manuel Legris as Romeo and Elizabeth Maurin as Juliet (the best Juliet I saw on stage! She will give her POB last performance in this part next season). But Legris/Loudières still remain my favorite couple!
There is also a full-lenght version of Grigorovitch's Romeo and Juliet, with Bessmertnova as Juliet (I don't remember who was playing Romeo), which was broadcast on French channel Mezzo a few months ago.

Makarova and McKenzie.  In the actual performance, which was televised live, McKenzie came out in the final act wearing his sweats!!!  In the VCR for public consumption they re-did the ending with McKenzie properly attired.

I must be missing something here - why would McKenzie come out for the last act in sweats?

Because he forgot to take them off when the orchestra started to play the introduction to that act -- OOPS! :)
