A story as timeless a love itself

Gounod’s sweeping adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, returns to the Wortham in a dazzling new production that will transport audiences to an evening at the London Globe. With a large chorus, big, rich harmonies, intricate dance numbers, and sumptuous costumes, this is French grand opera at its finest. The story opens in Verona, where the star cross’d lovers’ families are feuding. As the tale goes, tragedy strikes, and Romeo and Juliet need to choose family or true love. Along the way, the doomed couple sing four romantic duets that are so beautiful, they will warm even the coldest heart. Radiant soprano Adriana Gonzalez makes her HGO debut as Juliet opposite beloved tenor Michael Spyres, conducted by Speranza Scappucci, also in her company debut.

Co-production with The Atlanta Opera and The Dallas Opera
