Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation rises or falls with the artists portraying the title heroes.

In this production, Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo star as the star-crossed lovers, singing “with white-hot sensuality and impassioned lyricism” (The New York Times) and bringing “such unbridled passion, both vocally and physically, to their portrayals that the familiar tragic tale takes on an immediacy that is rare on stage” (The Huffington Post).

Bartlett Sher’s thoughtful new production updates the setting from Renaissance to 18th-century Verona.

Original title Roméo et Juliette
Production year 2017
