Secret Cinema Presents: William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet
In fair Verona where we lay our scene… 60,000 young hearts and lovefools, divided into the houses of Montague and Capulet, entered the vibrant world of Baz Luhrmann’s modern masterpiece to celebrate the Truce of Two Houses.
Free to roam, some ran riot at the Montague mechanics whilst others snuck into the dazzling ball at the Capulet Mansion where star-crossed lovers and ancient foes met to the tunes of Mercutio’s ‘Young Hearts Run Free’.
As the sun set beneath Sycamore Grove, the evening culminated in a theatrical screening of the greatest love story of all time.
For Secret Cinema Presents: William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, our team delivered technical and site production including overseeing the temporary structures, lighting, audio, rigging, video, pyrotechnics, scenic and art departments.
We managed the technical CAD design of the show, the CDM construction and oversaw the audience health and safety. Our team also coordinated the venue planning applications, and premise licensing with the local authority.
Secret Cinema used this production to support the work of MAC-UK, a charity advocating “music and change” to prevent street violence, alienation, in equality and exclusion in London, raising £30,000.
We have partnered with Secret Cinema on numerous productions that have seen a combined audience of over 500,000 people visit immersive worlds ranging in locations ranging from abandoned warehouses to public parks.
