William Shakespeare

ROMEO AND JULIET

DESCRIPTION

The shakespearian poetic language formulates as accurately as possible that one-off and complex emotion, which we experience in adolescence, although reminding us that we have to live our life intensely because death is always in the here, next to us.

Romeo and Juliet is the shortest and the most beautiful love story of the dramatic literature. It starts as it is already over. Because of the fragility of the story, it is not the social conflict that is emphasized, but the human relationship itself, more precisely the ability to establish human relations, which defines us both in our good and bad decisions. In this story, because of the irrepressible passions, there are much more wrong decisions than good ones, which lead to irreversible acts.

THE MEDIA ABOUT PERFORMANCE

(...) the Opole version of "Romeo and Juliet" is a rock performance (although the music does not sound like rock), dynamic, entertaining, aesthetically attractive, with all chances for a long presence in the repertoire.
