Shakespearean Drama of the Highest Quality Performed at an authentic recreation of The Globe. With performances by world famous award winning Shakespearean actors this series has recaptured the Elizabethan flavor of Shakespeare's own Globe productions by staging them just as they were seen in the 16th century. Shakespeare's tragic story of young love thwarted by a family feud. Two rival Veronese families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are warned that their constant brawls must end and that death threatens anyone who disturbs the peace. Romeo the Montague heir attends a masquerade dance at the home of the Capulets, Romeo and Juliet, the Capulet's daughter meet and fall immediately in love. They arrange to be married in secret by Friar Laurence the next day. Romeo becomes embroiled in a fierce duel with Tybalt, a Capulet and now a cousin by marriage. He kills Tybalt and is banished from Verona. Juliet's father insists she marry. To help her avoid the impending marriage, Friar Laurence gives Juliet a potion that makes her appear dead. Romeo, believing that Juliet is dead, drinks a poison and dies by her side. When she revives and sees Romeo dead, she stabs herself. Only after the double tragedy are the families reconciled. Featuring Alex Hyde-White, Blanche Baker and Esther Rolle.
