From high comedy and first love to aching tragedy

Two teenagers, born into a world seething with hate, meet one fateful night and fall in love. Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers is electrified in this contemporary, highly physical production from Bell Shakespeare.

Exclusively for students, and at a cracking 90 minutes, this will be an in-theatre experience that is sure to grip the hearts and minds of today’s teenagers. Join the Montagues and Capulets in this hot Verona summer.

Presented by Bell Shakespeare in partnership with Sydney Opera House
