Lead Production Sponsor, Roméo et Juliette

The grand and sweeping retelling of one of the most tragic love stories of all time

He's a Montague. She's a Capulet. Despite years of bloody conflict between their warring families, Roméo and Juliette fall instantly in love. Their passionate love fans the flames of hatred between the two families and drives these young lovers to their heartbreaking deaths. Experience the heady rush of rebellious first love in Gonoud’s sumptuous adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy

A cast of young stars brings the operatic adaptation of Shakespeare’s beloved play to life including tenor Pene Pati as Romeo and soprano Kristina Mkhitaryan as Juliet, both in exciting Company debuts. Joining them is baritone Yunpeng Wang as Mercutio and mezzo soprano Sarah Coit as Stephano also in house debuts. San Diego Opera principal guest conductor Yves Abel brings his mastery of the French repertoire to lead the musicians for these performances and stage director Matthew Ozawa brings his unique visionary style to the stage.

Sung in French with English translations above the stage
