Verona

Verona

The Teatro Nuovo in Verona opened in 1846 and is a member of a group of leading Italian theatres known as the Teatro Stabile del Veneto, which also includes theatres in Venice and Padua.  

 

Romeo and Juliet

Since 2015 The Kings Theatre Portsmouth and Teatro Stabile Veneto – Teatro Nazionale have worked together to bring Italian and English Language productions of the most famous romantic tragedy ever written, Romeo and Juliet, to its original setting, Verona.

This production of Romeo and Juliet features three cast members (and a narrator) performing the play’s greatest scenes in some of Verona’s most beautiful locations including Juliet’s courtyard, the Cortile Ex Tribunale, the Cortile Mercato Vecchio and Teatro Nuovo.  The interactive promenade productions invites the audience to dance alongside Romeo and Juliet as they fall in love, be a witness at their secret marriage, to take part in the tragic fight that leads to Tybalt’s death and to weep at Romeo and Juliet’s poignant final moments together.

 

June - September 2017

Building on last Summer's collaboration to bring a promenade production of Romeo and Juliet to the streets of Verona for the first time, we are currently seeking actors to perform in the English language production in July and August 2017.
