French Opera Romeo and Juliet by NCPA

The five-act opera, Romeo et Juliette is a French romantic opera masterpiece by Charles-Francois Gounod. Many of the opera's characters have exquisite arias, and the two lovers' many duets are exceedingly beautiful and worthy of the classic. On the occasion of the bicentennial of Gounod's birth and 125th anniversary of his death, the NCPA has invited Stefano Poda, factotum of the opera stage, to handle the direction, set design, costume design, lighting and choreography. The renowned opera is presented in his novel design and unique style. The French opera conductor extraordinaire, Patrick Fournillier returns to the NCPA after Thais, and reproduces the romantic spirit of French music for a broad audience.
