Everyone is familiar with the classic story of “Romeo and Juliet,” but this weekend CFA is spicing it up with an all-French opera rendition of the Shakespeare classic with English supertitles by Allison Voth. The performance is a collaboration between CFA’s School of Music Opera Institute and the School of Theatre and is hosted by CFA graduate students. The music is by Charles Gounod and the Libretto by Jules Barber and Michel Carré.
The performance will run from April 21-24, beginning at 7:30 PM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 2:00 pm on Sunday at the Boston University Theatre. Tickets are free with a BU ID, so don’t miss out. Tickets for BU alumni, WGBH members, Huntington subscribers, students and senior citizens are $15, and $20 to the general public.
The Huntington Theatre is located at 264 Huntington Avenue. To buy your tickets online, visit the Boston Theatre Scene or call the Box Office at (617) 933-8600.
