Gounod: Roméo et Juliette DVD (The Royal Opera)

Charles Mackerras teases the romantic beauty from Gounod's score, which has been widely admired since its first performance at the Théâtre Lyrique, Paris, in 1867. In this 1994 recording, the youthful Roberto Alagna as Roméo and Leontina Vaduva as the unattainable Juliette lead an excellent cast in this touching portrayal of impossible love, based on Shakespeare's play.

AMAZING!!!

This DVD is one of the most beautiful productions of any opera that I have ever seen. Everything about it is PERFECT! The singing and the acting are absolutely breathtaking, the music is gorgeous, the costumes and decorations are very beautiful. I have watched this DVD three times already, and all three times I cried! And each time I notice that I have never cried that much when watching anything before. And that only proves that this production is a masterpiece! A huge BRAVO to everyone involved in this piece of art. Leontina Vaduva is very convincing as Juliette and has a beautiful voice, Roberto Alagna is charming and simply fascinating as Romeo. Their chemistry is impeccable, they make you feel what their characters feel and believe them. Even though this is a tragic story, the opera does not lack humor and the production's choreography adds to it wonderfully. Simply everything about this DVD is absolutely BRILLIANT, thank you Royal Opera House for providing me such an unforgettable experience.
