Romeo & Juliet in Heidelberg (2015)

After the sell-out successes of Macbeth and Hamlet in 2014, London’s Butterfly Theatre Company is coming back to the Tiefburg to celebrate 1250 years of Handschuhsheim – this time with the greatest love story of all times: Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. Famed for their immersive, site-specific productions, Butterfly invite you to follow the two star-crossed lovers on a one-hour tour of the grounds and castle and witness at close quarters how their all-consuming passion tries to survive in a world of violence, hatred, debauchery and bigotry. This intimate and unconventional experience of Shakespeare will transport you into a different world full of music and poetry and place you in the centre of the heated action.
