It’s a hot summer in Verona. The Capulets and the Montagues, two rival households, re-ignite an old dispute and violence ensues. On the other side of town, 14 year-old Juliet falls in love with Romeo at first sight. But Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague. Their love is forbidden and hazardous and has but one penance – death.
Within three days, the greatest love story of all times will end. In order to be in each other’s arms Romeo and Juliet will struggle against all odds, against all social conventions, in a trail of blood of fire – until the bitter end.
Romeo and Juliet, arguably the world’s most well-known play, has sparked imaginations for the past 400 years. With Shakespeare’s unique courage and wisdom, it deals with destiny, social conventions, the generation gap, man’s inherent violence and above all – love’s ability to give and take life.
