Summary

Summary

Nominated for the Publishers Weekly Listen-Up Award in both Classics and Full-Cast Production categories

Blackstone Audio is proud to present the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's 2012 production of Romeo and Juliet, one of Shakespeare's most beloved tragedies. This stunning work of audio theater, fully dramatized with performances by the OSF cast, is a must-listen.

A love to die for…

When you are passionately, purely in love, nothing else matters—not even life itself. Shakespeare's consummate tragedy of young lovers swept into a catastrophic vortex of misunderstandings, secrets, and fate is set in 1840s Alta California, a vibrant and conflicted time in our history. Romeo and Juliet, the son and daughter of two landed families locked in an old feud, are irresistibly drawn to each other. Defying the hatred and distrust surrounding them, they dare to believe they can—and must—be together.

Editorial Reviews

“A captivating rendition, courtly enough in its tone and design to allay traditionalist carping, yet energetic, full-blooded, and in no way hidebound.” OregonLive on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s theatrical production of Romeo and Juliet

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
