Giulietta e Romeo (musical)

"Giulietta & Romeo" is an Italian-language musical with music by Riccardo Cocciante and lyrics by Pasquale Panella, based on William Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet". Since its world premiere in Verona on June 1, 2007, directed by Sergio Carrubba, the musical has toured throughout Italy, playing in various Italian cities, including Rome, Milan, Naples and others. There are plans to stage it in other European nations in the Italian language.

The cast is composed mostly of boys and girls between the ages of 15 and 18. Each actor has at least two roles.


Juliet and Romeo's young love is strongly opposed by their two families, the Capulets and the Montagues. Their feelings are intensely passionate, but they inevitably meet a tragic fate.

Changes from the Shakespeare story

Mercutio is an omniscient character, who sings the overture and guides the meeting of Romeo and Juliet during the party at Capuleti's home. The role of Tybalt is circumscribed to the quarrels among the family clans. He has a scanty character and grazes madness. Lord Capulet's role is expanded. The roles of Lady Capulet and Lady Montague are eliminated.

Juliet dies because of a heartbreak, instead of by the dagger. Friar Lawrence is the character that indirectly decides the fate of Romeo and Juliette driving them during the second act. At the end he will cry over the deaths together with the two fathers.
