"Romeo and Juliet":

The heart and soul, hatred and bitterness, celebration and mourning, fights and rivalries “In fair Verona… where civil blood makes civil hands unclean”.

Director’s notes by Solimano Pontarollo:

The fortune of working for years on the same texts is that it allows you to enrich your knowledge and focus on the essentials. This version of Romeo & Juliet stages one of the most beautiful love stories of all time by putting sound, words and music together to enhance the emotions.
The sound of Shakespeare’s words in original language, the sound of the Italian narration that make the story universal, the sound of the harp, non only as instrument, but also as character.
Here famous parts come to life through the relationship of the two main leading roles, Romeo and Juliet, and between them the dancer, a character that illustrates the ambiance, the conflict and indifference of the beautiful Verona “where fraternal hands are covered with fraternal blood”.
The public will be at the same time spectator and participant, when, with delicate interaction, they (will) become part of the story.
