[exp] [/exp]From May 7-15, 2016, you can see the Atlanta Opera’s production of Gounod’s Romeo & Juliet at the Cobb Energy Centre.
Not familiar with the work? Per the summary: “Come with The Atlanta Opera as we venture to Verona and meet Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile feuding families. Not seen on the Atlanta Opera stage since 2007, Charles Gounod’s opera in five acts, sung in French, reexamines the story through a decidedly French romantic lens. In France, the work is regarded as Gounod’s best achievement, and has correspondingly produced numerous performances. Although it is less frequently performed in the United States, The Atlanta Opera’s version is a rare, magnificent visual treat.” Although Romeo and Juliet will be sung in French, there will be English supertitles.
