Romeo+Juliet Opera
by William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Ferdinando Ceriani
Music and choreography by assistant director Alice Guidi
Music by Queen

We all know the story of Romeo and Juliet. Despite the choir's revelation of the story's tragic ending, when we read the tale of the two young lovers, or we see it on television or in the theater, we still hope for a surprise, that in the end, Juliet wakes up a second before Romeo drinks the poison. Why? What is it in this tragedy that captivates us and leads us on? The original title, "The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet" offers a key clue to understanding its undying allure: this story is not for the weak of heart.

Guiding our interpretation are Baz Luhrmann's film starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Claire Daines and the music of Queen, a perfect match for the Shakespearean tragedy, sung live by our student actors. Now all we have to do is enjoy the story once more with the naive conviction that maybe, just maybe this time, our young lovers will defy the odds ... maybe.
