Sung in French with projected English translations

Shakespeare’s tragic romance returns to our stage after an absence of over 40 years, combining the powerful drama with Gounod’s lush music. Family rivalries cannot fight the young love of Romeo and Juliet, with tragic consequences as the couple is determined to be together forever.

Featuring the Opera Birmingham Chorus and the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.
