Music by Charles Gounod Staying faithful to Shakespeare’s play, the opera heightens focus on the two young lovers. A chance encounter. A meeting of eyes. Love at first sight. Two young people, kept apart by their feuding families, decide to take fate into their own hands and pursue their love. Married in secret, they hope to end their families’ enmity through their union. But circumstances conspire to thwart their efforts as missed chances, poor timing, and mistakes prevent the lovers from finding happiness. Roméo et Juliette is the ultra-romantic love story of two young lovers swept along by fate.
