Deeply disappointing - travesty rather than tragedy
Aug 2019
Seeing ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in Verona is a long-held ambition of mine and I was ecstatic about the opportunity. However this is not a performance of Shakespeare’s play but a messy re-telling of the story with a few isolated scenes (well-performed by the actors) and lots of attempts at silly audience interaction. The poetry and theatrical brilliance that have made the play so famous - and bring many people to Verona - is almost completely abandoned. Even the opportunities for immersion in Shakespeare's words are lost - Juliet’s tomb speech was completely drowned out by music that was far too loud and completely unnecessary.
I understand the need to shorten the play and audience engagement is important. But this production sacrificed everything good about the play in favour of something ridiculous and, frankly, boring. What could have been a spectacular promenade performance in beautiful, meaningful locations became something that patronised its audience and insulted the play itself.

Dear Fiona, I inform you that Opera in love - Romeo and Juliet is not the show you saw. Opera in love is performed only on demand sincera 2015. Casa Shakespeare opened in this season the Shakespeare Interactive Museum, in which you live an immersive experience and a live performance on Romeo and Juliet story. We are now on stage with Romeo and Juliet too, but in Bardolino and Caldiero, close to Verona.

Like an improv show mixed with Romeo & Juliet scenes
Jul 2019
The "improv show" part has 2 narrators: one in English and one in Italian. As in an improv show, they involve the audience, and play off each other very well. Periodically and in the correct locations, Romeo & Juliet enter and do their scenes, such as the balcony scene and final scene. The night we attended, the star-crossed lovers spoke Italian, and even though I only caught a few words, the language was so beautiful, and knowing the play helped. There are frequent rains in the summer in Verona, but it held off until later the evening that we attended. However, there is enough indoor presentation that I'm sure it could be altered to deal with the rain. I would highly recommend this event.

Great performance, too bad it wasn't translated!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Great concept - an interactive play around Verona. The actors and actress (Juliette) put on a very entertaining and memorable show. Only grieve would be language- we were told that there'd be English translation when we bought the tickets, but very little of the Italian script btw Romeo and Juliet was translated. I'm sure the show would be even better with real time transcript, that can be projected on the screen

A lighter way to (re)discover Romeo and Juliet
Aug 2018 • Couples
This show brings you in different spots in the city where the actors make you go through the most known and key scenes of the tragedy of Shakespeare in a very modern way with a touch of humor when appropriate. You are never bored!

The performers are friendly, play well and are very engaged.

The performance is in English (or Italian) but might be difficult to understand from time to time if you don’t have a good level in English.

It’s not expensive (20€ p.p.) considering that the show lasts 90 mins.

It’s also a nice way to discover Verona by night.

Would highly recommend.

Fabulous
Jul 2018 • Friends
One of the most entertaining evenings I have spent any where. I am sure William Shakespeare would approve of this incredibly innovative performance of Romeo e Giulietta, beginning in the courtyard under the famous balcony of Giulietta's house the performance moves to various locations keeping the show lively, witty and incredibly entertaining. Well done to all involved bravo!!!!!!

Interactive pantomime with real heart
Aug 2017 • Couples
A relaxed, fun, interactive mix of pantomime, street theatre and classic Shakespeare. A small, talented band of performers created a very entertaining atmosphere as they retold the story of Romeo and Juliet (Guilietta) with lots of audience participation, laughs and action. The night began with a drink and ended with an ice cream! In between there was singing, dancing, excellent storytelling and a very moving finale. The English and Italian narrators kept the audience entertained throughout, and Romeo and Juliet gave excellent performances also.
I would recommend this experience to anyone- a "must do" whilst in Verona.

Brilliant night
Aug 2017 • Couples
Booked this for my wife and didn't expect much but it was only €20 each so not much to loose. It starts off in the court yard and you get a free drink beforehand then there are 2 narrators one English one Italian they get the audience going and were really good and funny. As the night goes on you are taken to different locations to tell different parts of the story, it's a lot easier than it sounds and very well organised. All in all me and my wife really enjoyed it and for me it was worth the visit to Verona just for that. I would say if it's hot like the night we went take a bottle of water u will need it, you do get a free ice cream at the end though.

A roaming theatre
Jul 2017 • Couples
The play takes about 90 minutes and you move between 5 different locations around the centre of Verona. You start in the courtyard of Juliette at around 8:30. The final scene finishes back inside the theatre. Don't be too close to the front of the crowd unless you want to be roped into playing a part. Not expensive and quite a lot of fun.
