‘Our version of the world’s most romantic tragedy will be inspired by 1960s Italy and draw heavily on mafia culture. The creative team is composed of artists from all over Europe, making this season even more international‘, Midsummer Scene team hold us before premiere, ‘the most famous story of love at first sight with no happy ever after comes to Fort Lovrjenac this summer. Star-crossed lovers ripped apart by the bitter feuding of their families, risk everything to stay together. Our festival headline production is set in 1960s Verona with the backdrop La Mala del Brenta, a Northern Italian version of the Mafia. This version of the play has a distinctly Medditeranean feel, in a period when rebellious teenagers flaunting convention and challenging authority were still very much a novelty.’
