About

Rolando Villazón’s Roméo wins Juliette’s heart with impassioned, refined singing of an emotionally and vocally demanding role. Directed by Bartlett Sher, who telegenically captures the fantastic natural scenery of the famous Felsenreitschule, this first-ever production of Gounod ‘s Roméo at the Salzburg Festival benefits from Québecois conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s innate understanding.

Only 25 and film-star beautiful, soprano Nino Machaidze embodies Juliette with unforced girlish charm, gorgeous tone and emotional heat.

Bonus features:
- Villazón relates the Roméo story in his own words
- Behind the scenes documentary
- Documentary on the traces of Romeo and Juliet in Italy.
