The MET Opera: Roméo Et Juliette

CTC Music

The electrifying team of Vittorio Grigolo and Diana Damrau reunites for a new production of Gounod’s opera based on the Shakespeare play.

Damrau makes her role debut as Juliette in Bartlett Sher’s new production, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. Elliot Madore sings Mercutio and Mikhail Petrenko sings Frère Laurent. Sher’s staging is a La Scala production, initially presented by the Salzburg Festival, where it premiered in 2008.

“Grigolo exuded extraordinary passion, vocally and physically … Damrau traced the heroine’s emotional state
exquisitely from girlish giddiness to tragic sacrifice. ” —Financial Times

“Electrifying … Combustible chemistry.” —Wall Street Journal

“These exciting and charismatic artists disappeared into their characters, emboldening each other to sing with
white-hot sensuality and impassioned lyricism.” —New York Times

“Bartlett Sher’s brilliant and inspired new production … is a revelation … The Met could not ask for a better
pair of lovers than Damrau and Grigolo … Unbridled passion … A stirring operatic event.” —Huffington Post

“Star quality … A thrilling star team in Grigolo and Damrau.” —New York Observer
