The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection, brings Romeo and Juliet to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition.
In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates a tragic world in which two young people fall in love. It is not simply that their families disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud. This play, set in an extraordinary world, has become the quintessential story of young love. This new full-cast recording - based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare's classic - expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

I used this with my 7th grade English. The students were struggling to understand the text because most 13 year olds don't read iambic pentameter well, not to mention archaic words. We were into the third act when I used an Audible credit to get this version. Tbe kids loved it. Their understanding increased and when it did, so did their enjoyment. I'm so glad their introduction to Shakespeare turned out so well!

a classic alive
I really liked this performance of the classic romance. I hadn't heard it in a long time and I'm glad i returned to it. The full cast really helps comprehension too, for many of the outdated words and references are elucidated by context and intonation.
