Roméo et Juliette Music by Charles Gounod
Libretto by J. Barbier and M. Carré

Two young lovers decide to take fate into their own hands after feuding families, bad timing, and fatal mistakes tear them apart. Gounod’s music soars in this French romantic twist on Shakespeare’s most celebrated love story.
