A modern classic with a twist: Romeo and Juliet at The Rose Theatre

The Mokhwa Repertory Company’s production of Romeo and Juliet returns to the UK for only 10 days following its sell-out success at the Barbican in 2006.

Once again The Rose Theatre in Kingston presents a popular classic with a twist: Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet performed in Korean with English subtitles.The production hopes to show this famous love story in a new light, expressing the drama through martial art sequences, live music and dance. The highly stylised interpretation directed by Oh Tae-Suk promises to be a spectacle with striking set and costumes. The Sunday Telegraph has described the production as ‘unquestionably rewarding’.

Romeo and Juliet continues at The Rose Theatre until Sunday 25 July. Tickets range from £10 to 28, with pit cushion places at only £7. Sadly I am unable to make it, but let me know what you think if you get there!
