Romeo & Juliet

Presented by: Festival Opera

Experience the most famous love story of all time like never before, with Festival Opera. You’ll be swept away by the intoxicating French flair for romance in this classic retelling of Romeo and Juliet.

Composer Charles Gounod brings seemingly effortless beauty and rousing anthems to this tale of two star-crossed lovers whose passionate romance unfolds amidst a backdrop of relentless hatred between two warring families. It’s a story that tells of the ultimate sacrifice, the burden of loyalty, and the boundless power of love. The opera is set in the Renaissance era, and with its lush melodies and stirring arias, performed by a full symphonic orchestra and cast of world class opera singers, this production will transport you to a world where love conquers all.

Join Festival Opera for the ultimate ‘Date Night’ and enjoy a captivating evening filled with passion and drama.
