Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece I Capuleti e i Montecchi, inspired by the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet, is what The New York Times calls “an opera of definite dramatic appeal.” The cast is headlined by international stars Joyce DiDonato (winner of the Grammy and the ECHO Klassik) and Nicole Cabell as the ill-fated lovers Romeo and Giulietta. Directed by Vincent Boussard in his U.S. debut and led by returning conductor and bel canto specialist Riccardo Frizza, this new co-production, has sets created by French opera, theater and dance designer Vincent Lemaire. The production features stunning costumes by renowned fashion designer Christian Lacroix, a frequent collaborator with Boussard and a prominent fashion icon known for both his couture house and his theater, ballet and opera costumes
