Gounod's Roméo et Juliette
January 21 - 1:00 p.m.
When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. The Bartlett Sher directed production, has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts.
Runtime is approximately 3 hours with one intermission.
