Comedie Francais: Romeo Et Juliette

CTC Theatre

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Comedie Francais: Romeo Et Juliette at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

History's greatest love story. The World's most prestigious stage.

Rarely staged in France, William Shakespeare’s classic makes its return to la Comédie-Française for the first time in about 50 years. Ruf’s take on the play remains as close as possible to Shakespeare’s original masterpiece, in a “Southern Italy where the sun hits town squares and heats up people’s minds. (…) An Italy of vendetta where vengence, death are inherited from a generation to the other…”.

Érif Ruf is also responsible for the scenography of the play and collaborated with Christian Lacroix, a regular at la Comédie-Française, as costume designer.

Presented in French with English subtitles
