WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Shakespeare's tragedy of the star-crossed lovers has inspired many operas, symphonic poems and ballets, as well as Bernstein's West Side Story. Perhaps the most famous is Gounod's opera, first heard in Paris in 1867. It immediately became very popular - indeed, in the early years of the Met it often opened the season. The melodic score includes Juliet's waltz and Romeo's balcony aria (almost a direct translation of Shakespeare's "But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?"). This is the Met's first new production of the opera in almost 40 years. Composer: Charles Gounod Librettists: Jules Barbier, Michel Carré 2006 Schedule Tuesday, February 21 at 8:00 pm Saturday, February 25 at 8:30 pm Wednesday, March 1 at 8:00 pm Saturday, March 4 at 1:30 pm Thursday, March 9 at 8:00 pm
