A timeless story with Saimir Pirgu and Aida Garifullina

The most famous love story in literature has been turned into the most faithful likeness to the original tragedy by Shakespeare thanks to the talent of Charles Gounod, one of the great representatives of French lyric drama. Roméo et Juliette returns to the stage of the Gran Teatre del Liceu after a 32-year absence. This co-production with the Santa Fe Opera is directed by Josep Pons, and co-stars Saimir Pirgu and Aida Garifullina. Stephen Lawless's sets locate the original action in the context of the American Civil War (1861-1865). The lovers live in a classic mortuary, as a prefiguration that will fatally condition their destiny from the very start of their infatuation.

Approx running time 3 hours.

Tickets on sale from June 2017.
