Romeo & Juliet in Rothenburg (2015)

One of the most romantic places in Germany is about to become the setting for the most romantic story of all time: London’s Butterfly Theatre Company are bringing Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to life among the dreaming spires of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Famed for their immersive, site-specific productions in Britain and abroad, Butterfly invite you to follow the two star-crossed lovers on a one-hour tour of St. Wolfgangs Church and Klingenbastei 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 at the centre of the heated action.
