Mai parole più belle uscirono dalla penna di un poeta per raccontarci il contrastato e infinito amore di due giovani, Romeo e Giulietta, rampolli di due famiglie nemiche tra loro nella turbolenta Verona del Trecento. È solo l’amore a muovere le avventurose fila della storia, è l’amore l’unica legge che Giulietta e Romeo vogliono assecondare, la sola origine dei loro pensieri, l’unico sogno per cui valga la pena di vivere.
Shakespeare da vida la historia de dos adolescentes, cuya incontenible y desbordada pasión para colocar el amor por encima de la muerte, en el marco dramático y absurdo del odio ancestral que se profesan do familias: los Montesco y los Capuleto.
