Romeo & Juliet

William Shakespeare belum pernah mempublikasikan pementasannya tentang Romeo dan Juliet dan tidak adapun masukripnya yang terselamatkan. 18 versi pementasannya yang tidak resmi buatannya malah diterbitkan saat dia masih hidup, dan tak ada hak cipta yang melindungi Shakespeare.

Sampai 7 tahun setelah kematiannya pada bulan April tanggal 23 tahun 1616 koleksi karyanya belum terlihat hingga dua pengikutnya yaitu John Heminges dan Henry Condell merekam pekerjaannya dan menerbitkan 36 drama William Shakespeare.

Saat ini script Romeo dan Juliet karya William Shakespeare dapat diakses online di Act I | Act II | Act III | Act IV | Act V, karya tersebut menginspirasi dunia karena kegagalan atau keberhasilan cinta untuk membuat penderitanya mati.

Bahasa yang ada dalam naskah Shakespeare sangat berbeda dengan bahasa Inggris saat ini sehingga ada-ada saja yang membuat kamus Shakespeare dictionary, agar naskah tersebut bisa dipahami dengan mudah.

Cerita Romeo dan Juliet mengambil seting tempat di Verona, Italia di abad pertengahan. Melibatkan dua keluarga yaitu Capulets dan Montagues. Berbeda dengan film Habibie dan Ainun yang juga membuat banyak orang terharu ketika melihatnya. Salah satu bedanya adalah kalau Habibie dan Ainun adalah cerita nyata, sementara Romeo dan Juliet itu cerita entahlah...




Romeo & Juliet | Dire Straits

A lovestruck romeo sings a streetsus serenade
Laying everybody low with me a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it ? 

Juliet says hey it's romeo you nearly gimme a heart attack
He's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back
You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that
Anyway what you gonna do about it ? 

Juliet the dice were loaded from the start
And I bet and you exploded in my heart
And I forget the movie song
When you wanna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet ? 

Come up on differents streets they both were streets of shame
Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
And I dreamed your dream for you and your dream is real
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals ? 

Where you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
You promised me everything you promised me think and thin
Now you just says oh romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
There's a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet ? 

I can't do the talk like they talk on tv
And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be
I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
I can't do anything except be in love with you

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
All do is keep the beat and bad company
All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
Julie I'd do the stars with you any time

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
There's a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet ? 

A lovestruck romeo sings a streetsus serenade
Laying everybody low with me a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it ?
