Romeo och Julia

A contemporary dreamplay evolves out of Shakespeare’s timeless play. It is performed in Södertälje south of Stockholm, at Södertälje Stadsscen.

This version of Romeo and Juliet was created by the community group Livet Bitch! Dramatic arts together with the El Sistema Södertälje chamber orchestra, led by director Linda Mallik. This is a dramatised concert, a dream play of sorts, merging music and words on the stage. 

The performance simultaneously marks the 10-year anniversary of the collaboration between El Sistema Södertälje and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, which both look forward to a continued collaboration. In autumn 2012, El Sistema Södertälje began working with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestra’s musicians serve as role models and mentors to the students, and many close friendships have formed between the students and musicians over the years. 

To meet public demand, an additional performance will be presented of the dream play Romeo and Juliet. It will be held at Södertälje Stadsscen. Many attendees were prevented from attending the world premiere at Konserthuset Stockholm in October 2021, due to restrictions.
