Romeo & Julia

Västerbottensteatern, Skellefteå

Just in time for our classic year, the theatre's artistic leaders have written a whole new script for the classics of the classics - Romeo & Julia.
So what's new then? Everything and nothing. In our version, Romeo and Juliet are two adults, equal people who meet and become heavenly lovers. The language and relationships are respectfully updated and in-depth, but we all recognize the strong message of the original story - love knows no boundaries.
Like Shakespeare, we play with rhyme, rhythm and form but we also blast in lots of newly written songs and music - it will be musical theatre from beginning to end. All performed by a hand-picked, beautiful singing and dancing ensemble. Although we are in Verona's 17th century in both scenography and costume, the music is modern which gives a set that spans over 400 years. In the middle of the Western Botanical summer, we invite you to history's most beloved love story, filled with laughter, happiness and sadness.
