Shakespeare

Romeo & Juliet

Picture 1

Our story takes place in the 17th century in an ancient, hot, walled, Italian city called Verona. When people talk about Verona, these are the words they use - fair, toil, mutiny, unclean, fatal. I wonder what these words might tell us about Verona. This is Verona, a city of 'love' and 'rage'.

Montague. Capulet. Two households. Both alike in dignity. This is the city of star-crossed lovers. Romeo & Juliet. The City of the Rose of Verona. The city of Death.
