Only a teenager, Juliet’s world was tightly controlled and so, so small. There were parties, to be sure, but she chafed against the domineering love of her parents, her cousin, her nurse. Then suddenly, there was Romeo! Like a dream of love come to life—and forbidden. Charles Gounod’s faithful adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragic tale of star-crossed lovers comes to life in a fanciful new production. Cincinnati Opera favorite Nicole Cabell returns to bring her “faultlessly gleaming soprano” (Financial Times) to the role of Juliet, and Canadian tenor Frédéric Antoun stars as Romeo in his company debut after leading performances at Opéra de Paris, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and the Salzburg Festival.
