Dorchester favourites Opera Holloway return with a fresh new contemporary take on one of the most famous love stories of all times, Romeo and Juliet, as depicted by one of Opera’s true legends, Bellini.

Director Fiona Williams moves the action to 1950’s Naples; the stifling heat fans the flames of a budding romance. In this poor neighbourhood, controlled by the mafia, Romeo and Giulietta fight to unite their families and keep their relationship alive.

The cast features Sophie Dicks as Romeo and Callie Gaston as Giulietta, with a piano and string ensemble conducted by Lewis Gaston.
