Gounod’s lush adaptation of Shakespeare’s epic romance tells the story of ‘Romeo Et Juliette’, two people from warring families who fall madly, and tragically, in love.
Putting a greater focus on the two lovers than the original play, Gounod’s opera has been hugely popular ever since its first performance, valuing subtlety and vocal delivery over showy effects.
Director Bartlett Sher’s production of ‘Romeo Et Juliette’ has already won critical acclaim, and reunites Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo after their spectacular performances in 2015’s production of ‘Manon’.
Sung in French with English subtitles.
