Celebrate Valentine’s Day with the quintessential love story. Shakespeare’s drama about young lovers is the definitive tale of tragic love, sparking countless interpretations, but few are more lush and luminous than Gounod’s setting of Romeo and Juliet. From the glorious masked ball where Romeo first spies the beautiful Juliet, to the famous balcony scene where the lovestruck young man declares his eternal devotion, to the ultimate tragic ending, this timeless tale never fails to touch the heart. A sensational success from the very start, this gorgeous opera is filled with dramatic duets and awe-inspiring arias, including Juliet’s famous waltz, “Je veux vivre” (I Want to Live), which are exemplary of French Romantic period music. Sung in French with English supertitles.
Tickets: $98, $80, $48
