About Charles Gounod's Roméo et Juliette
The “thrilling star team” (New York Observer) of Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo sing with “white-hot sensuality and impassioned lyricism” (New York Times) as Shakespeare’s classic star-crossed lovers in Gounod’s lush adaptation. Director Bartlett Sher’s “brilliant and inspired new production … is a revelation” (Huffington Post), and has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. The performances are led by the “richly textured and vibrant conducting” (New York Times) of Gianandrea Noseda.
Production a gift of The Sybil B. Harrington Endowment Fund.
Composed by Charles Gounod. Conducted by Gianandrea Noseda.
Running time: 2 hours and 56 minutes. In French, with English subtitles.
