Come and join us on April 27, 2024 to the MET in HD rebroadcast of Gounod’s ROMEO-et-JULIETTE.

Two singers at the height of their powers—radiant soprano Nadine Sierra and tenor sensation Benjamin Bernheim—come together as the star-crossed lovers in Gounod’s sumptuous Shakespeare adaptation, with Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct one of the repertoire’s most romantic scores.

This Met production moves the action to the 18th century. Shakespeare’s most enduringly successful love story, Roméo et Juliette is set during French Romanticism, a tradition that values subtlety, sensuality, and graceful vocal delivery over showy effects. In the opera there is greater focus on the two lovers, who are given four irresistible duets, including a brief final reunion in the tomb scene that does not appear in the play.

The opera is sung in French with English surtitles.

The performance lasts 3 hours and 10 minutes that includes one 35 minutes intermission.
