Product Description

Product Description

Dominic Dromgoole's production brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare's most famous and best-loved tragedies. Filmed before a live audience at Shakespeare's Globe in the heart of London, its intimate and atmospheric setting adds immediacy and vitality to the humour and passion of Shakespeare's verse. Filmed in High Definition and true surround sound.

Press Reviews

"Dromgoole is blessed with a smashing pair of young lovers. Adetomiwa Edun's Romeo is fresh, cheeky, light on his feet and full of the ebullience of young love... The production's secret weapon is Ellie Kendrick...delivers the jewelled verse with a lovely purity and directness. I particularly admired Rawiri Paratene's impassioned Friar Lawrence, Ian Redford as a Capulet, and Tom Stuart's hilarious performance as a socially inept Count Paris." (The Daily Telegraph)

Format: Blu-ray
I saw this performance live at the Globe and I'm afraid to say we sneaked out half way and went home. The acting was just excruciating. Tybalt was the least angry I have ever seen him, Romeo had ants in his pants and did not stand still for more than thirty seconds and Mercutio just didn't raise the laughs that his character deserves. It was like a very good am-dram production, but nothing like anything else that I have seen at the Globe. It's not that I'm just an uncultured Philistine: I have seen this play performed lots of times (double figures) including another production at the Globe, so I think my opinion here is pretty valid. It's simply not a brilliant production.

Excellent idea to not turn a production into a film, but to film a production from an audience perspective.
I love Shakespeare and have been to The Globe many times.
I will be collecting all the DVDs in this series.

Most things about this production are top notch. Short of actually being there, it's one of the best ways to experience Shakespeare in general and Romeo and Juliet in particular. Also, if you were actually there you'd have to stand up during the whole play. But as one other reviewer commented, why does Romeo deliver all his lines backing away from people? It's ridiculous! After a while all you can think of is: "Please nail that guy's feet to the floor". Have never seen anybody overact his role as much either. Juliet and all the others are great though, and if you like Shakespeare give this production a go. You might not get as irritated about Romeo as I got, but remember I warned you.
