Romeo and Juliet (Romeo e Giulietta)
Presented in Italian

July 19-23, 2016
Teatro Romano, Verona, as part of the Summer Theatre of Verona festival

Romeo and Juliet, the Romantic tragedy par excellence, becomes a middle-class tragedy about generational clashes in Andrea Baracco’s vision. The tearing conflicts which run through the whole story show us an adult world shut in its own unmoving universe—its houses are like shop windows. The adults are just interested in keeping their own privileges and remain impassive to the uneasiness and the violent passions which overcome their sons and daughters. Baracco's reading of this classic tries to tell us about our contemporary world, hanging in the balance between fidelity to the original and his own interpretation of it characterized by a stylized theatrical language.
