Recognized worldwide as one of theatre’s most iconic couples, Romeo and Juliet are the very archetype of tragic young lovers. Set against a backdrop of warring households, a young Romeo sneaks into a masked ball where he first beholds Juliet and is thunderstruck by Cupid's arrow. As fate dictates, they succumb to the passion of forbidden love against the will of their powerful and unforgiving families. So ensues a story of romance, murder, and tragedy as famous as any that has graced the stage. Through Shakespeare’s beautiful prose, these star-crossed lovers will take your breath away in Aquila's striking and moving adaption of The Bard's classic tragedy.
