Gounod’s opera is a five-act opera based upon the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Roméo et Juliette tells the story of two rival families, the Capulets and Montagues, who are fueled by hatred yet somehow love emerges between two of the youngest members.

Love does not triumph in this tale, only tragedy as revenge, murder and misunderstandings lead the lovers to die in each other’s arms. The opera will be set in 14th century Verona, Italy. The five-act opera will be presented in French with English supertitles.
