Romeo & Juliet

February 11 – March 20

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Darko Tresnjak

“A plague on both your houses!”

Director Darko Tresnjak follows up his spectacular production of Hamlet with Shakespeare’s most popular play. The intense feud between the Montague and Capulet families devastates the city of Verona and foreshadows tragic consequences for young Romeo and Juliet. Revenge, passion and a secret marriage lead the world’s most famous star-crossed lovers to a harrowing end.
