Romeo and Juliet is, perhaps, Shakespeare's most famous play, enjoying immense popularity ever since it was written in 1597. The theme of the unhappy lovers, existent in Greek culture, is revived in the Middle Ages, by the Italian short story author Matteo Bandello, whom Shakespeare borrowed it from. Love and death are combined here as fundamental alternatives of existence. The two lovers are subjugated by the deep feeling of love, transforming it in a significant symbol, capable of ignoring everything and everyone. In the background, interwoven in their love story, the climate of hatred and revenge of the two families transpires and gives even greater poignancy to the love and unity in death of the two young lovers.

 

 

 As conceived by the young director Tudor Lucanu, the story will unfold within two tailor shops. The lifeless mannequin-bodies cover the austere space, with black panels and lateral mirrors. Stands with different color silk rolls divide, like a wall, the space in which the two enemy families lead their existence. In a world of "fashion" and fashion design, the costumes represent a sort of masks which, in the end, are discarded by the murdered characters, thus exiting the story. On the soundtrack of sharp tailoring objects, especially scissors, but also the noise of the sewing machines, the music of ideal love, able to transgress the borders of live, in the afterworld, covers the entire production, connecting the contemporaneity with the eternity.
