Charles Gounod's "Romeo et Juliet" is an opera in five acts based on the French libretto by Jule Barbier and Michel Carré. Notable for the four duets sung by the main characters and the waltz song "Je veux vivre," Opera Colorado's version is performed in English and has been adapted for younger audiences. Based on the play by William Shakespeare, Opera Colorado's version also includes scenes from Shakespeare's original text.
This concert is appropriate for young adults and the perfect opportunity to introduce a young person to the glamor of Opera Colorado, the drama of the theater and this timeless tale of two star-crossed lovers.
Friday, May 16 @ 7:30pm Tickets range from $10.00-$20.00
