Romeo and Juliet
One of the most popular of Shakespeare's plays, and one of his most performed, Romeo and Juliet is an enduring love story of emblematic proportions. A story of ill-fated lovers whose tragic deaths unite two feuding families, Romeo and Juliet has become the archetype of young love destined to meet a tragic end. The hatred between the House of the Capulets and the House of the Montagues is well known in Verona. Yet love blossoms between Romeo and Juliet, and a series of misjudgments and chance inexorably play out to their doom.
