William Shakespeare's love tragedy of Romeo and Juliet – in a contemporary setting.
Barrie Kosky's production »gives Bernstein's old West Side Story back its hardness and explosive power« [Berliner Zeitung] and stands out not least thanks to Otto Pichler's »truly contemporary choreography: raw, unpolished, virile, full of testosterone« [Berliner Morgenpost]. A musical which does not believe in the almightiness of love, but which demands tolerance with all might. »Unhappy ending, thunderous applause at the première.« [Der Tagesspiegel]
