Based on Shakespeare's tale of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Against a backdrop of ancient feuds and gang warfare, the ill-fated young couple falls hopelessly in love, but their families are bitter enemies. In order to be together the two lovers must be prepared to risk everything. In Ballet Ireland's production, Shakespeare's tragic tale is transported from the streets of medieval Verona into the classrooms of a modern-day high school. It becomes a play within a play.
