romeo and juliet

Sunday, 9 August 2015

For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo. 


In English this semester we are studying William Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' and on friday we went to the Opera House to watch an adaption of the play. It was very good, simple production with some modern twist. Instead of elaborate costumes from the 1400s the actors where dressed very casually making it more relatable and separated it from the traditional version. The language can be confusing but seeing it performed live makes it much easier to understand, I recommend seeing either the play or the movies if you haven't already. 

This play isn't exactly my favourite but I think it's amazing that even after 420 years it is still the most famous love story of all time and can still attract the attention of audiences across the world. 

Such fun!
