Romeo and Juliet at Rippon Lea House and Gardens

Concert or Performance

4 Mar 2019 to 21 Mar 2019

This Summer, the Australian Shakespeare Company invites audiences to watch the world’s most famous star-crossed lovers under the stars, in one of Victoria’s most beautiful estates; Rippon Lea House and Gardens.

Set in Verona, Italy, where ongoing discord between the Montague and Capulet families rages on, Romeo and Juliet is a compelling drama about two young lovers whose deaths unite their feuding families. A timeless classic celebrating the joy of young love, the power of family, the value of friends, and the futility of hate, it’s a tale that will melt the hardest heart and wet the driest eye. For never was there a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Shakespeare Under The Stars join The Australian Shakespeare Company as they bring Melbourne a brand new production of Romeo and Juliet. Enjoy a night of theatre under the stars with a blanket, wine, and great company.

Directed by Glenn Elston with music by Paul Norton. Bookings available online or via phone.
