Romeo and Juliet

Category: Set Design

Design Statement

This production of Romeo and Juliet is presented in a traditional fashion with a contemporary flair. The scenic design combines old world textures and Modern architectural line. The structure of the set incorporates a number of traditional Elizabethan staging elements; the upper stage, the inner stage, the main stage, etc. The traffic patterns in the ground plan allows seamless scene transitions and great movement of action. The fight scenes take place on an exciting and varied terrain. Visually, the space opens up for scenes such as the masquerade and closes down for more intimate scenes such as the balcony scene. Juliet's tomb eerily appears through the archway of the inner stage beautifully facilitating the atmosphere of the catacomb. The nooks and functional lion head fountain provide fun opportunities for the characters to hide and taunt one another throughout the play. The traditional costuming, dynamic lighting, and excellent musical underscore beautifully compliment the scenic environment. All together, the design elements create an immersive experience for the contemporary audience.
