Roméo et Juliette

CCOC's 37th Season Opens With 
Gounod's Roméo et Juliette 

This spring, Capitol City Opera will present Gounod’s five-act opera, Roméo et Juliette, based upon the play by William Shakespeare. Roméo et Juliette tells the story of two rival families, the Capulets and Montagues, consumed with hatred for one another and 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 and performed in French with English supertitles.
