Welcome to the latest edition of Cultural Capital.
This week we’ve got two explosive pairings of star-crossed lovers – the actor Mark Rylance tells us why he’s supporting a youth production of Juliet & Romeo that transposes the action to present day London and turns the classic tragedy on its head, while two amazing dancers from the Royal Ballet take us behind the scenes as they prepare to dance the gorgeous romantic/tragic ballet Giselle.
We’ve got a climate-themed Thing of the Week (topical!) and I’m reviewing the superhero movie of the moment, Eternals. I really, really wish I liked it more than I do.
