Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod, the best ever operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's play, returns to the Gran Teatre del Liceu after 32 years. Romeo's aria "Ah lève-toi soleil!" and Juliette's waltz "Je veux vivre" are particularly well known.
The Liceu performance boasts a cast of top singers headed up by the Russian diva Aida Garifullina and the tenor Saimir Pirgu. The production, set in the midst of the American Civil War, follows the original story but transposes it from Verona to the United States.
This is an excellent recommendation for anyone wishing to discover this great opera based on the most famous lovers of all time.
