A musical presentation of "Romeo et Juliette” is slated to take the stage at the Guangzhou Opera House from November 18 to December 2.

Roméo et Juliette is a French musical based on William Shakespeare's play, with music and lyrics provided by Gérard Presgurvic. It premiered in Paris on January 19, 2001.

The show has opened across the globe, with performances in Verona, Rome, Canada, Antwerp, London, Amsterdam, Budapest, Szeged (Hungary), Moscow, Vienna, Bucharest, Seoul, Pusan (South Korea), Taipei, Monterrey (Mexico), Japan and Shanghai. Among the languages it has been performed in are Flemish, Italian, Hungarian, Russian, English, German, Spanish, Romanian, Japanese, and Korean.

 

Deviations from Shakespeare's original plot include the nature of the lovers' demise, depending on the production. New characters such as Death and a poet have appeared in certain performances for dramatic effect. Lady Capulet has a greatly increased role, and in the Hungarian version, has an affair with her servant. The role of Tybalt also changed slightly – from being purely dark, to a more pitiful character because of his dark childhood and his growing up with hatred, as well as an unrequited attraction to Juliet.

Dates: November 18 to December 2
Time: Tuesday - Friday: 8 p.m., Saturday: 2:30 p.m., Sunday: 8 p.m.
Price: RMB 199 - 2,100
Venue: Guangzhou Opera House
Address: 1 Zhujiang Xi Lu,Zhujiang Xincheng, Tianhe District
