Romeo and Juliet: Estonian National Opera
About the Event
In this famous love story, director Stephen Barlow focuses on the fate of two hostile families and integrates them into contemporary Parisian society.
Gounod's magnificent version of Shakespeare's tragic story is graceful, dramatic and extremely melodic. It is known for its deeply emotional love duets, its beautiful orchestral colours and its heart‐rending choirs. Through the futile feud of the Capuleti and Montecchi families, the love of two young people is the ray of light that spreads the message of eternal love.
