Gounod's 'Roméo et Juliette',
heard by ROBERT HUGILL

 

Covent Garden's production of Gounod's Roméo et Juliette (seen 13 November 2010) is receiving its second revival, having first been seen in 1994 and again in 2000. For many people this will be the only production of Gounod's version of the Romeo and Juliet story that they have ever seen, stagings of the opera in the UK being very rare. The problem with such rarities is that production style can have a big effect on your perception of a piece...
