Few romances are as gorgeously written -- or as heartwrenching -- as Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare's classic tale of star-crossed lovers. This operatic staging takes the tragic story to a whole new level with some of the most lush, ecstatic music in the operatic repertoire. The Montague and Capulet families have been feuding for years, but when young Romeo Montague goes out with his friends to make trouble at a Capulet party, he meets Juliet, the Capulets' daughter. When the two fall madly in love with each other, can true love prevail or will it crumble beneath the weight of an ancient and bloody feud? Backed by an orchestra and featuring stirring duets, this opera will immerse you in tragedy and passion. See it at Woodland Opera House.
