‘Til death do you together.

How can you heighten the drama of Shakespeare’s most famous play? By giving it the French grand opera treatment. Gounod’s adaptation of Romeo and Juliet follows Shakespeare’s centuries-old tale and brings this familiar tragedy to an epic crescendo. Romeo Montague has fallen for Juliet Capulet, a member of a rival family in the City of Verona. They secretly marry, but family tensions come to a dramatic peak. A plan is hatched to keep them together; however, it plays out in all the wrong ways resulting in devastating tragedy. With an expansive score, gorgeous sets, and period costumes, you’ll see Shakespeare’s tale as you’ve never experienced it before.
