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

NT Live: The Audience

E Theatre

For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace – a meeting like no other in British public life – it is private. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence – and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional – sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive.
