Opera Vincenzo Bellini “ The Capulets and the Montagues”
In his romantic bel-canto masterpiece “The Capulets and the Montagues”, Vincenzo Bellini tells his version of the immortal story of Romeo and Juliet, Verona’s star crossed lovers.
This will be the first time that the opera, filled with Bellini’s wonderful, endless melodies, will be presented by the Greek National Opera in co-production with Arena di Verona and the celebrated Teatro La Fenice, where it premiered in 1830. Romeo’s part, which was initially written for a woman’s voice (breeches role), like it was still usual at the time, will be alternately performed by Irini Karaianni and Mary-Ellen Nesi.
