KBTC: Romeo and Juliet
Experience the best of British theatre in the Netherlands.
Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh direct Richard Madden and Lily James as Romeo and Juliet, Derek Jacobi as Mercutio and Meera Syal as The Nurse, in Shakespeareʼs heartbreaking tale of forbidden love.
There are many ways of approaching Shakespeare’s youthful tragedy: Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh take the scenic route in this new production. We are plunged into a vividly imagined 1950s Italy of dark-suited men, petticoated women, bicycling friars, patriarchal oppression and frantic partying. You feel Fellini is due any moment to film it with a movie camera and, even if the result has its oddities, the production certainly has a pulsating energy.
“Branangh gives tragedy a touch of a La Dolce Vita”– The Guardian
KBTC: Romeo and Juliet will be screened at Theater De Fransche School in Culemborg on 27 October 2016. For more information and tickets go their website.
