Romeo & Juliet -

Charles Gounod

Rose Theatre, Kingston

Riverside Opera

Romeo and Juliet is a tale of opposition and division; where people are torn apart by people. In this world where conflict is rife and warring political dynasties cleave families apart, two young lovers are desperate to break through this seemingly impenetrable wall.

 

Sophie Gilpin directs Riverside Opera’s production of Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet. The haunting question inherent in this story – and one that resonates throughout history – is “Who is to blame for the death of the innocents?” Their own choices, the bigotry of their parents, or a divided society’s values and belief systems?
