Charles Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette is one of the most famous love stories in all of opera. Stage director Bartlett Sher (winner of a Tony Award for best director of a musical for his revival of South Pacific on Broadway) makes his European opera debut with this production of Roméo et Juliette at the Felsenreitschule. Rolando Villazón, one of the world’s leading tenors, stars opposite young Georgian soprano Nino Machaizde, who made her La Scala debut in 2006 as Najade in Ariadne auf Naxos. The French-Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, music director designate of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, conducts for the first time in Salzburg.
