Met: Live in HD - 'Roméo et Juliette'

Gounod's Roméo et Juliette

The New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. The production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala.
