Romeo and Juliet
June 16th - The Stratford Festival's digital capture of Romeo and Juliet follows two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, who have long been embroiled in a bitter feud - but despite their parents' enmity, Romeo (a Montague) and Juliet (a Capulet) fall in love at first sight. The sympathetic Friar Laurence marries them in secret - then, when Romeo is banished for his part in a fatal street brawl, conceives a daring scheme to reunite them. But for these two "star-crossed lovers," love and death seem fated to entwine in a tragic embrace.
June 18th- The digital capture of Giacomo Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly, at the Royal Opera House, tells the story of Cio-Cio-San, the young Japanese bride of dashing American officer Lieutenant Pinkerton, who finds her romantic idyll shattered when he deserts her shortly after their marriage. She lives in hope that one day he will return.
Timon of Athens
June 23rd - The Stratford Festival production centers around the wealthy nobleman, Timon, who ignores all warnings that his reckless generosity can lead only to ruin and disillusionment.

When all refuse him, he throws one last party - one that heralds a dramatic change in his attitude to the world.
