STET Open Air: Romeo and Juliet

Globe Ensemble Berlin

How do we want to live and whom may we love?
STET shakes up Shakespeare’s best-known tragedy during their yearly Open Air performance in Wassenaar. German Theatre company Globe Ensemble Berlin will perform their English spoken, modern production of Romeo and Juliet at the estate of Raadhuis de Paauw on September 11th and 12th.
In Shakespeare’s probably most played tragedy, the love of a young couple tears open old wounds that were never healed – and thus brings to light what could be possible, namely the rapprochement of the hostile families. But peace without sacrifice seems impossible. In this play, utopia and illusion collide cruelly. The struggle of the young generation to show that this does not have to be the case, that utopias can be realised without losses, captivates the audience and touches hidden longings. But who will win in the end? The old or the young? The utopia or the illusion?

Director Christian Leonard has transferred this classical production into a theatrical experience for the present. Making Globe Berlin’s Romeo & Juliet a play in the best folk theater tradition full of linguistic richness, fast-paced battle scenes and intoxicating music.
