Romeo & Juliet
Original English Language Shakespeare outside in the Kaiserpfalz Castle Ruins
“If we look around the world, we unfortunately can still find historical and learned hatred between two parties everywhere. Despite this, we continue to hope that the useless sacrifices of this timeless prejudice will eventually be recognised. We advocate for and hold on to the idea that one day it may be triumphed. In this respect, ROMEO & JULIET continues to remain a relevant story and one that can serve as a blueprint for countless conflicts throughout time, not only globally and socially, but also within our personal lives.
Our performance of ROMEO & JULIET will tell the love story of two young women. The Kaiserpfalz Ruins are the ideal venue for this story, bringing its own history to the stage; evoking memories and depicting how the play’s theme of hate under the threat of love, has created physical alterations to the space. The audience will sit enraptured within the calm, powerful atmosphere of the ruins, to enjoy a unique summer evening.”
We are thrilled to announce that English Theatre Düsseldorf will be performing Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’ outside, in the beautiful Kaiserpfalz Ruins, Kaiserswerth from 11th – 22nd June 2022. Uniting a team of creatives from across Europe and the USA, we present to you ‘Shakespeare Am Rhein!’
