Secret Cinema announces William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet


Today, Secret Cinema announces that its latest immersive film experience will bring to life Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the classic Shakespearean love tragedy Romeo and Juliet, a summer festival in a secret outdoor location.

From August 9th – 19th 2018, a secret outdoor London location will be transformed into a spectacular multi-layered world of Verona Beach. Tickets will go on sale at 12pm (BST) on Friday 18th May, with prices starting at £49 plus booking fees.

Bringing together live bands, DJs, choirs and artists, these spectacular, open-air productions will be the largest experiences Secret Cinema has ever produced, with an audience of almost 5,000 people who all take part in the show.

Secret Cinema Presents William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet will be set against the themes of peace, redemption and salvation, young hearts of Verona will be summoned to the city on behalf of the brave and noble Captain Prince. All are called to create a truce between the warring houses of Montague and Capulet, all must come to crush a cup of wine in peace.

Audiences will be transported to a world that depicts the iconic and stylised elements of the film and Shakespeare’s story. This playground of performance is separated into a myriad of sprawling sections that will bring light and life to the characters, words and desires of Baz Luhrmann’s world like never before.

Fabien Riggall, Secret Cinema Founder & Chief Creative Officer “We are excited to take Secret Cinema into the fields reimagining the festival format by creating large scale magical immersive worlds across an entire outdoor location, where the audience live inside the most loved films of all time. We are excited to launch our summer festival with the perfect film in Romeo and Juliet. The film is the perfect title to bring to life and confronts some profoundly important social issues, such as youth violence, that remain as relevant in London today as they did in Shakespeare’s Fair Verona. We will be working with a London based charity who work towards tackling these problems.”

Matthew Bennett, Creative Director on the production, added “Each night will see thousands of people take part in a carnival of performance expression, a living world of one of the greatest love stories ever told. William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet has epic ingredients with which we can play with: from the legendary characters, the rich back story of families feuding along with all the anthems for the audience to discover and sing across our world.”
