From Wednesday 10 September to Saturday 4 October, Manchester’s extraordinary Victoria Baths will be the setting for an original promenade performance of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

The drama is retold as a contemporary fairy tale set in a criminal underworld of Eastern Europe and influenced by Eastern European stories, music and film.

The three atmospheric empty Victorian swimming pools will be transformed into a dangerous, seductive and entertaining world with an ensemble of bold and colourful characters and the music of Gypsy bands and Balkan choirs.
