Stills
"My inspiration for the staging came from Patrice Chéreau’s film Bartholomeus Night. The costumes were inspired by Fellini’s Casanova ... I intend to show Romeo and Juliette’s innocence in a decadent world ... after each period of decadence a catastrophe occurs before a new development may begin". [Director, Barlett Sher].
