Born in England, Frederick Delius wrote music inspired by his wide-ranging life and locales ranging from the sunshine of Florida to the fiords of Norway. In this opera, A Village Romeo and Juliet, he takes the traditional story of star-crossed lovers and transplants it to a quiet hamlet in Switzerland.

Take one of the greatest love stories of all time and replace the Montagues with Sunnis, the Capulets with Shiites, and set the play in Iraq. That’s the premise for the new play “Romeo and Juliet in Baghdad” showing this week at the World Shakespeare Festival in the United Kingdom. Listen to playwright and actor Monadhil Daood.
