In the Italian city of Verona, the Montague and the Capulet families are perpetually feuding. When Romeo (Leonard Whiting), a handsome young Montague, disregards convention by attending a Capulet ball, he falls in love with the beautiful Juliet (Olivia Hussey), a Capulet. After a brief courtship, the two elope, creating even greater tension between their families. Italian director Franco Zeffirelli’s Academy Award-Winning film is considered to be the definitive screen version of Shakespeare’s classic love story.
Followed by a discussion with classical theater directors Jesse Berger and Michael Sexton, in conversation with SVA faculty member Mary Lee Grisanti.
