PLAYS IN ITALY/SPETTACOLI IN ITALIA

VERONA – ROMEO AND JULIET to be staged in Verona’s Juliet Courtyard (news via @TheStage 14 May 2015) “An English-language production of Romeo and Juliet is to be staged in Juliet’s Courtyard in Verona for the first time. The Kings Theatre in Portsmouth is working with Italian theatre company Teatro Stabile Verona to produce the play, which will run in the courtyard from July 29 to August 19. The site-specific production will be directed by Paolo Valerio, the artistic director of Teatro Stabile Verona. Juliet’s Courtyard is known for containing a 14th-century house and balcony that once belonged to the Cappello family – believed to be the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Capulets. Following the staging in Verona, the production will be brought to the UK for a run at the Kings Theatre. Casting will begin in June.” – I’m so curious to know who will be in this cast!! –> Kings Theatre site: kingsportsmouth.co.uk – Facebook page: kingstheatre – Twitter account: — …….

VERONA – ROMEO E GIULIETTA verrà allestito nel Cortile di Giulietta a Verona! “Per la prima volta, una produzione di Romeo E Giulietta in lingua Inglese verrà rappresentata nel Cortile di Giulietta a Verona. Il Kings Theatre di Portsmouth sta lavorando con la compagnia teatrale italiana del Teatro Stabile di Verona per produrre lo spettacolo, che verrà inscenato nel cortile dal 29 Luglio al 19 Agosto. Questa specifica produzione sarà diretta da Paolo Valerio, il direttore artistico del Teatro Stabile di Verona. Il Cortile di Giulietta è famoso per la sua casa del XXIV secolo e il balcone, che furono di proprietà della famiglia Cappello – la quale si crede sia stata l’ispirazione per i Capuleti di Shakespeare. Successivamente alla rappresentazione a Verona, la produzione verrà portata in GB per un periodo al Kings Theatre. Le audizioni inizieranno in Giugno” – Sono curiosissima di sapere chi entrerà nel cast!!
