Romeo and Juliet is the world’s most famous drama of tragic young love. Defying the feud which divides their families, Romeo and Juliet enjoy the fleeting rapture of courtship and marriage; but a combination of old animosities and new coincidences brings them to suicidal deaths. A rich mixture of romantic lyricism, bawdy comedy, intimate harmony and sudden violence it kept Romeo and Juliet perennially loved by generation after generation since its writing in the mid 1590’s.
