Comedie Francaise: Roméo et Juliette

France’s most prestigious and respected theatre company will broadcast its brilliant production of Shakespeare’s iconic and timeless play to cinemas across the globe.

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.

Rarely staged in France, William Shakespeare’s classic made its return to la Comedie-Francaise in 2015 for the first time in about 50 years.

Ruf’s take on the play remains as close as possible to Shakespeare’s original masterpiece: “In a Southern Italy where the sun hits town squares and heats up peoples minds… An Italy of vendetta where vengeance, death are inherited from a generation to the other…”
