“You are a lover; borrow Cupid's wings.”
"[Romeo & Juliet] ]sparkles into life on a bare stage that replicates the compelling physical intimacy of Shakespearean theatre [...] earthy buffoonery rubs shoulders with the most transcendent poetry." - NZ Herald
The Pop-up Globe Theatre Company present Shakespeare’s immortal tragedy Romeo & Juliet, at Pop-up Globe Auckland.
In a divided society, a boy and a girl meet. Their forbidden love will change their world - and yours - forever. This production with a contemporary setting takes a fresh look at the world's most famous love story.
Performed by a cast of professional actors brought together into a new, specially-formed ensemble repertory company and working with world experts to bring you the authentic shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.
"Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines"
Pop-up Globe is an open air amphitheatre and in the Groundlings under the sun it can get quite hot. We recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, a water bottle and even a handheld fan. Umbrellas are not permitted inside the yard so in case of rain please bring a raincoat!
Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale working temporary replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, the result of groundbreaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360 degree experience unlike any other.
Romeo & Juliet is presented by Pop-up Globe Theatre Company as part of the Anthony Harper 2016 Auckland Season at Pop-up Globe
