Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet - Shakespeare's Globe 2017

Daniel Kramer, Artistic Director of English National Opera, brings Shakespeare’s timeless ritual of love and death to the Globe stage in a vibrant, volatile production. His wild and energetic take on Romeo and Juliet explodes in a modern twist on Shakespeare’s classic story. Witness the grotesque glamourisation of violence, the silence of death.
