MET Opera: Romeo Et Juliet
Sun 21 Apr 2024
Based on the timeless play by William Shakespeare, Gounod's sumptuous operatic adaptation traces the universally known tragic story of two star-crossed lovers from feuding families.
A pair of artists at the peak of their vocal powers, soprano Nadine Sierra and tenor Benjamin Bernheim headline in the title roles, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct one of the repertoire's most romantic scores. The cast also features baritone Will Liverman and tenor Frederick Ballentine as the archrivals Mercutio and Tybalt, mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey as the mischievous pageboy Stéphano, and bass-baritone Alfred Walker as Frère Laurent.
Captured live in New York and screen at BMEC as part of our Live Performance on Screen program.
