‘My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.’

Synopsis


In Verona, violence rules. Two families bear an ancient grudge, and rage flares between them. In a world where greed, wealth and bitter feuds prevail, two disenchanted children dare to choose love.

Two households. Two children. One love. One fate.

Background


Daniel Kramer, Artistic Director of English National Opera, brings Shakespeare’s timeless ritual of love and death to the Globe stage in a vibrant, volatile production. His wild and energetic take on Romeo and Juliet explodes in a modern twist on Shakespeare’s classic story. Witness the grotesque glamourisation of violence, the silence of death.
