Rediscover What Is Real In Romeo & Juliet: Eternal Love

Shakespeare’s Classic Tale Re-Told with the World’s Most Innovative Holographic Technology

Premieres in Miami at BankUnited Center – May 15-17, 2014
From the classic balcony scene to the raucous sword fights and the heart wrenching final deaths of world’s most well-known star-crossed lovers, Shakespeare’s popular tale of Romeo & Juliet is coming to South Florida in a way audiences have never seen before.

In its U.S. debut, Spectacular Stage presents ROMEO & JULIET: ETERNAL LOVE, a one-of-a-kind production combining live actors, extraordinary holographic technology and striking special effects – bringing a true Miami flair to Shakespeare’s timeless tale.

Re-discover the classic love story of Romeo and Juliet, told for the first time with the most modern and innovative multimedia special effects, May 15 (8 PM); 16 (8 PM) and 17 (2 PM and 8 PM), 2014 at the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami. Tickets for the Spectacular Stage production of ROMEO & JULIET: ETERNAL LOVE are officially on-sale, prices: $40, $60, $80, $110.

Making a Timeless Classic a Modern Legend
Production company Spectacular Stage specializes in the art of applying modern technology to classic works of theatrical art to bring new life to these timeless tales. It is their intricate technology, under the guidance of Visual Producer Lucia Mastromarino, that allows Spectacular Stage’s creative composers Giuseppe and Riccardo Raffa to bring Shakespeare’s most popular play to life, blurring the line of virtual and reality in the ultimate story of passion, love, lust, politics, rivalries and revenge. In addition to mesmerizing audiences with technology never before seen in the U.S., The Spectacular Stage intends to also incorporate contemporary society context – creating a deeper connection between the characters and theatre goers.

A meticulous virtual reconstruction of Renaissance Verona, Italy, envelopes the audience into a fully immersive theatrical experience. In a sense, Spectacular Stage has created a living movie, combining real life actors and high-tech projected holograms, cinematic quality settings and an exceptional musical score.
