Romeo and Juliet: gallery
"Romeo and Juliet" is one of Shakespeare's most famous plays. It has been adapted for the screen many times. The most successful adaptations were Franco Zefirelli's version of 1968 (shot in Verona, with very young actors and in Renaissance costumes) and Baz Luhrman's version of 1996 (a rock'n'roll version with a not-yet-very-famous Leonardo Di Caprio). The musical "West Side Story "(1961), though not a faithfull adaptation, is based on the play.
A ballet was created on a music by Prokovief.
