About Gounod's Roméo Et Juliette

Two singers at the height of their powers—radiant soprano Nadine Sierra and tenor sensation Benjamin Bernheim—come together as the star-crossed lovers in Gounod’s sumptuous Shakespeare adaptation, with Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct one of the repertoire’s most romantic scores. Bartlett Sher’s towering staging also features baritone Will Liverman and tenor Frederick Ballentine as the archrivals Mercutio and Tybalt, mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey as the mischievous pageboy Stéphano, and bass-baritone Alfred Walker as Frère Laurent.

Perhaps the most enduringly successful of the many operatic settings of the world’s consummate love story, Roméo et Juliette is an excellent example of French Romanticism, a tradition that values subtlety, sensuality, and graceful vocal delivery over showy effects. In the opera there is a slight shift of focus away from the word games of the original play and a greater focus on the two lovers, who are given four irresistible duets, including a brief final reunion in the tomb scene that does not appear in the play.

Masterful, Delightful, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you like grand sets, showy costumes, spectacular singing and a wonderful orchestra bring this well known story to life in a grandiose way.

Don’t see it if if you would not like this story told over three and one hours - it is not rushed!

Masterful, Great singing

See it if you don’t want to miss a chance to hear the next great French tenor in Benjamin Bernheim. Sierra and the rest of the cast are all superb.

Don’t see it if you can’t tolerate any deviation from Shakespeare, but (spoiler) a modification to the final scene makes dramatic sense.

Feels sort of like a rip-off of west side story :), Great staging, Great singing, Exquisite, Enchanting

See it if You like Romeo and Juliet. Or opera. This is my favorite Met production so far this season.

Don’t see it if Not every opera is for everyone, but this one sure is. Unless you detest the source material, it's very worth a trip to Lincoln Center.
