Lobero Theatre

Based on the world’s most famous love story by William Shakespeare, Charles Gounod tells this tragic tale through sweeping melodies and a series of some of opera’s most touching love duets. Through it all, Romeo and Juliet hold steadfast to their bond and eternal love accepting whatever fate may bring, as long as they can remain together.

Conductor Aaron Breid and Director Fenlon Lamb both return after 2016’s double bill of Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. Celebrated soprano Sarah Coburn (Manon, ‘17) and tenor Nathan Granner (Rodolfo/La Bohème, ‘18) return as the eponymous lovers.
