Two classic Shakespeare plays are set to come to Qingdao’s stage in April. The two love stories Romeo and Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing, whether by tragedy or by comedy, are both known to bring tears to audiences’ eyes. The tragic love story of Romeo and his beloved Juliet has touched generation after generation, century after century, and has been adapted in countless ways. Son and daughter of two rival families in the city of Verona, Italy, the pair secretly fall in a forbidden love. Much Ado About Nothing, set in Sicily, is a comedy, but a drama nonetheless. It combines elements of mistaken identities, love and robust hilarity with more serious meditations on honour, shame and court politics, and is considered one of Shakespeare’s best comedies. The two love stories from the 16th century have both been drawing audiences of all ages throughout the centuries. So don’t miss out on the opportunity of an entertaining and cultural evening.
