In Verona, an old rivalry opposes the Capulet and Montaigu families. When Romeo Montaigu and Juliet Capulet fall for each other, they know their love is meant to be eternal. However they already sense its tragic ending... Without a doubt, Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare’s most famous play and yet… while most common stagings focus on a universal tale of love and hate, there is in Shakespeare’s text something much darker and much more complex, making the romance only seem like a backdrop. “There’s a black sun in this story, and this is what we ought to look into”, according to director Éric Ruf.
