DIRECTOR: Scott Wentworth

Romeo and Juliet is one Shakespeare’s most enduring classics, adapted over the years into operas, plays, musicals, symphonies, ballets, films and TV specials. This acclaimed production was directed by Scott Wentworth (Tony, Olivier, Joseph Jefferson award nominee) for the 2017 Stratford Festival, and features Sara Farb and Antoine Yared.

Despite its tragedy, the love story of the two young protagonists, Romeo and Juliet, is heartwarming. They not only love each other deeply but also dare to fight for their love, sacrificing their lives for it. Their love gives them the courage to face the hatred of their families and the obstacles in life. Therefore, although their death marks the end of their lives, they have morally triumphed and eventually bring peace to their two opposing families. Many scholars and critics consider this play to be a tragedy with a hopeful message, also known as a "tragedy with a happy ending."

 

《罗密欧与朱丽叶》(Romeo and Juliet)是英国剧作家威廉·莎士比亚创作的戏剧,是莎士比亚笔下最受欢迎的作品之一。虽是一出悲剧,但两个青年男、女主人公的爱情本身却不可悲。他们不仅彼此相爱,而且大胆追求他们的爱情,不惜以命拼争。他们的爱情力量使他们敢于面对家族的仇恨,敢于向生活中的障阻挑战。因而他们的死亡虽是生命的终结,却在道德上取得了胜利,终于使两个敌对的家族言归于好。许多学者和评论家从这个意义上称这出戏是乐观主义的悲剧,也就是人们惯说的悲喜剧。

该剧曾被多次改编成歌剧、话剧、音乐剧、交响曲、芭蕾舞剧、电影及电视作品。2017年,由斯科特·温特沃斯(Scott Wentworth)执导、安托万·亚瑞德(Antoine Yared)和萨拉·法尔(Sara Farb)主演的《罗密欧与朱丽叶》在加拿大斯特拉特福德戏剧节(Stratford Festival)正式上演。
