Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of renowned playwright William Shakespeare about two teenage "star-cross'd lovers" whose untimely deaths ultimately unite their feuding households. Literary critics praise the play for its use of language and dramatic effects such as switching between comedy and tragedy to heighten tension. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Influential even today, the title characters are considered the epitome of the "young lovers" archetype.
Romeu e Julieta (The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, no original) é a primeira tragédia de William Shakespeare sobre dois adolescentes completamente apaixonados, cuja a "morte inoportuna" de ambos acaba unindo a família dos dois, que antes eram rivais. É seguramente uma das maiores obras da dramaturgia mundial. Fora traduzida para vários idiomas. Há centenas de adaptações teatrais e cinematográficas da obra(entre os mais populares são os dirigidos por Zeffirelli e Luhrmann). Inúmeras são também as inspirações musicais sobre este drama (sem reminiscência e balé de Tchaikovsky e Prokofiev e o famoso musical West Side Story).
