Romeo and Juliet, a timeless tragedy that unfolds in the Italian city of Verona, highlights the passionate love between Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, members of two feuding families. Despite the hostility between their households, Romeo and Juliet secretly marry, but their happiness is short lived. A series of unfortunate events and impulsive decisions lead to a tragic end. The play explores themes of love, fate and the destructive consequences of hatred. With its poetic language, memorable characters and poignant storyline, this play has been the basis for numerous movie adaptions.
