Romeo and Juliet

My only love sprung from my only hate

Romance and tragedy come together in one operatic masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s famous love story told through the romantic melodies of Charles Gounod. Determined to be together, Romeo and Juliet find themselves caught between the rival families of their respective houses. The Montagues and Capulets are forced to reconcile their ongoing feud when the two lovestruck teenagers meet a tragic end.
