Roméo et Juliette
Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher's staging of Gounod's Roméo et Juliette updates the action to 18th-century Verona and conjures both the magic and heartbreak of this timeless love story.
A pair of charismatic artists, tenor Vittorio Grigolo and soprano Diana Damrau, are the star-crossed lovers of Gounod's dreamy adaptation of Shakespeare's timeless tragedy. Gianandrea Noseda conducts.
