Bellini’s rarely staged bel canto opera, written for the 1830 Venice Carnival season, is far removed from Shakespeare’s version: Rather than a story of burgeoning young love, the piece is an account of the last 24 hours in the young lovers’ lives.
This San Francisco Opera production, directed by Vincent Boussard and conducted by Riccardo Frizza, features stunning costumes by renowned fashion designer Christian Lacroix, and a cast headlined by stars Joyce DiDonato and Nicole Cabell as the ill-fated lovers Romeo and Giulietta.
