Roméo et Julietteby Charles Gounod
Charles Gounod's sumptuous take on the enduring tale of tragic young love, "Roméo et Juliette," is an excellent example of French Romanticism, a tradition that values subtlety, sensuality, and graceful vocal delivery over showy effects.In the opera the focus is 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 Met’s production moves the action to the 18th century.
This is the final Metropolitan Opera broadcast of the season. The next season begins in December.
