Greetings to all,

Tonight we go to London for the online premier of Romeo & Juliet, a play of love by William Shakespeare from the Shakespeares Globe.

Watch the Protected content of Romeo & Juliet available to stream free on YouTube from Monday 20 April staring 8pm German time / 7pm British time until Sunday 3 May Protected content . The original performance took place at the Globe Theatre, London, in summer Protected content .

A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families – and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold.

Dominic Dromgoole’s production brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare’s most famous and best-loved tragedies, drawing out the contemporary relevance of this passionate teenage love story.

Ellie Kendrick, a truly youthful Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun, a boyish Romeo, head an excellent cast whose period costumes point to the timelessness of parental disapproval, adolescent temperament, rivalry and violence.
