Versions of the legend of Romeo and Juliet have existed since antiquity, but is the celebrated story based in truth or is it merely fiction? The story of the famous lovers of Verona will come alive in this presentation filled with multiple interpretations of the star-crossed pair in film, theater, opera, ballet, and the visual arts. In addition, love will be examined from the point of view of social psychologists to understand the significance of first love, broken heart syndrome, and whether love at first sight really exists.
