Romeo & Julia
Cirkör’s original take on the world’s greatest love story!
About Romeo & Juliet
In William Shakespeare's play, Juliet is no more than fourteen years old and Romeo only a few years older. In our culture, the couple has become the very symbol of young love and a fiery passion that ends in tragedy. Their burning love rebels against rules and regulations because their families – the Capulet and Montague – have long been feuding with each other. The death of these two young lovers leads the mortal enemies to reconcile.
Romeo & Juliet was performed 135 times at Elverket theater in Stockholm to sold-out audiences and was voted the year's best performance by the readers of the online magazine Nummer.
A unique collaboration between Cirkus Cirkör and Dramaten, the Royal Dramatic Theater.
An old tale told in a new way
…a celebration through awesome acting, circus stunts, acrobatics, dance and comedy.DN
A Romeo & Juliet that deserves to go down in history, a complete work of art to be seduced by, for both young and old.Östgöta Correspondenten
A more beautiful love scene than the single night that Romeo and Juliet spend together has never been seen in the theater: hanging, gliding, rolling, hugging, floating, flying in suspended white velvet veils.Expressen
