Fall in love with Shakespeare's eternal story of romance and feuding families as the star-crossed lovers of Romeo and Juliet are brought to the Gardens magnificent setting.

As the old feud between the Capulet’s and the Montague’s heats up, two teenagers from opposite sides fall in love at first sight.
