General Information

Description

The tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet inspired some of Shakespeare's finest verse—and some of Bellini's most beautiful melodies. "An opera of definite dramatic appeal" (The New York Times) awash in "music of extraordinary grace" (All Music Guide), this bel canto masterpiece features international stars Joyce DiDonato, a singer of "glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace and remarkable talent," and Nicole Cabell, who "wields her radiant lyric soprano like a silken lasso" (The New York Times). Costumes are by world-renowned fashion designer Christian Lacroix; set designer Vincent Lemaire has created "dramatically powerful visual statements" (Opera Today) for the production; director Vincent Boussard "effectively underscores the claustrophobic, helpless situation of both lovers" (Opera News). Riccardo Frizza, praised by The New Yorker for his "crisp and idiomatic conducting," leads the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

Conducted by Riccardo Frizza and directed by Vincent Boussard.
