Vittorio Grigolo as Roméo and Diana Damrau as Juliette in Gounod's ‘Roméo et Juliette’.

Hailed by the New York Times for singing "with white-hot sensuality and impassioned lyricism", Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo star as the tragic lovers in Shakespeare's classic story. This new production of Gounod's Romeo et Juliette by director Bartlett Sher also features Virginie Verrez as Stephano, Elliot Madore as Mercutio, and Mikhail Petrenko as Frere Laurent. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.
