Goppert Theatre: Romeo & Juliet

Close

November 20, 2014

Goppert Theatre

By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
An epic tale of pride and war, faith and betrayal, loyalty to family blood and to the romantic joy coursing within one’s own heart, these are the hallmarks of Shakespeare in one of his most revered plays, still captivating audiences around the world. No two names call to mind the swirling tides of love’s triumph and tragedy more profoundly than the immortal Romeo and Juliet.

Parting may indeed be such sweet sorrow for these two bittersweet lovers, but theirs is a passion that shines in defiance of death itself.
