        Roméo et Juliette | The Metropolitan Opera

        Shakespeare’s Roméo and Juliet is filled with some of the best-known tableaux in literature: a girl on a balcony and a suitor below; a secret wedding of young lovers from rival families; a desperate plan to be together in spite of violence and exile; and a reunion in a dark tomb, where the dying hero and heroine prove that love is stronger than death. To these unforgettably romantic scenes, Charles Gounod’s operatic adaptation Roméo et Juliette adds music that is a thrilling, rapturous, and heartbreaking counterpart to the transcendent poetry of Shakespeare.
