Dramatized drama at its best...

It has been 45 years since I read this play. I have seen a couple movies based on the play but they really didn't to it justice. I found this audio book to present the play in an authentic, dynamic manner. I appreciate the cast and their wonderful work.

So much better to hear then to simply read.

I was hesitant to start this audiobook because when I have seen Shakespeare written before I honestly found it a bit offputting. But, I've heard before that it was originally penned to be preformed - that it doesn't work nearly as well, in tempo of language or action when it's just words sitting on a page that you look at.

And after hearing this - straight through all at once - I entirely agree. I'm off now to explore what other plays audible has by this theater group.

Tragedy Done Right

This is a classic tale of romance, passion, and its victims done right. It has a top notch cast that makes it a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Great for classroom use

Would you consider the audio edition of Romeo and Juliet to be better than the print version?

Yes! I've been teaching Romeo and Juliet to 9th graders for a few years, and this year I finally decided to use an audiobook in class for some scenes instead of having students read it aloud. It's been so helpful already! It's good for the students to read it aloud themselves sometimes too, but hearing it the way it was meant to be read has really helped their understanding of the play and their engagement in the story. I am enjoying this version; it is well-performed and has captured and kept my students' attention.

Listening to Shakespeare is easier than reading

It requires some patience to listen to a book written over 400 years ago. Language has evolved and it may require listening again to some parts to understand the context of archaic syntax and words. It was worth it -- to be familiar with such known quotations:

What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.

A part of star-cross'd lovers take their life.

Good night, good night. Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

Great Cast Performance

There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said many, many times--Shakespeare is a master, this is one of his masterworks and the cast did a fantastic job.

Good performances but I needed visuals

I really enjoyed the performances in this, but with so many male characters around the same age and with such similar voices, it was difficult to know at times who was speaking. If I were to venture this again, I'd have the script in front of me.

immer wieder schön

Die Geschichte ist bekannt und deshalb kann man sie gut auf Englisch hören :-)

Sprecher manchmal etwas schrill aber passt zur Zeitepoche ;)

LOVE IT!

The book feels more like listening to a movie and not to a written text. It was easy to listen to and kept me entertained from start to finish.
