‘Romeo and Juliet’ was first performed in the globe theatre in 1595. The play juxtaposes two opposite genres- the undying love of Romeo and Juliet and the ‘ancient grudge’ held with the Capulet and Mountague families.
When did performances occur at the Globe Theater?
The Globe, which opened in 1599, became the playhouse where audiences first saw some of Shakespeare’s best-known plays. In 1613, it burned to the ground when the roof caught fire during a performance of Shakespeare’s Henry VIII. A new, second Globe was quickly built on the same site, opening in 1614.
