Event Type: On Stage, Opera
The legend of the feuding Capulets and Montagues of Verona came home to Italy in spectacular fashion with the premiere of Bellini`s I Capuleti e i Montecchi in Venice in 1830. Drawing on the earliest versions of the Romeo and Juliet story (the source material for Shakespeare`s classic), Bellini chose to cast his star-crossed lovers as a soprano and mezzo-soprano; their sensuous duets, full of Bellini`s trademark long-breathed melodies, are highlights of this bel canto gem.
Featuring a youthful cast drawn from the UCT Opera School and CTO`s Young Artist Programme, this new production will be conducted by Jeremy Silver, the Director of the UCT Opera School. Steven Stead directs, with designs by Michael Mitchell and Kobus Rossouw.
