Romeo et Juliet
Posted: March 13th, 2008

Gounod’s ultra-sensual interpretation of Shakespeare is an ideal vehicle for star soprano Anna Netrebko and the remarkable tenor Roberto Alagna, both of whom bring their incandescent appeal to the title roles. The irresistible Nathan Gunn is Mercutio and Plácido Domingo presides on the podium.

ROMEO ET JULIET airs for SundayArts on April 6, 2008.

    I saw this performance in December and have now watched it on Thirteen/WNET. It is absolutely wonderful. Netrebko is breathtaking and Alagna is an incredible Romeo. Thank you so much for presenting wonderful opera performances on Thirteen/WNET. Please continue to make opera lovers (like me) extremely happy with these incredible performances. Thank you.

  • Charles Krull

    Wht a wonderful performance! Thank you to the Met and all of the performers.

  • Richard Loew

    Unfortunately I missed this performance. Is this opera available on
    DVD or CD? If so, could you provide any information regarding how
    I might obtain it.

    Many thanks,
    Richard Loew
