Why See San Francisco Opera - Romeo and Juliet?
A tale as old as time
If you thought your family was dysfunctional, try being the two most famous young lovers in literature. Whilst Romeo Capulet and Juliet Montague are concerned with being star-crossed, their rival clans will stop at nothing to destroy the other. When it becomes clear the match will not be tolerated, the pair hatches a scheme to escape the embittered streets of Verona; only the outcome depends on some dangerous trickery that might just see their fates entwined forever, and not in the marriage bed as previously planned.
Romantic, dramatic and unforgettably tragic, enjoy William Shakespeare's epic tale as told through Charles Gound's sparkling and lush score, to a libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carre. Directed by Jean-Louis Grinda, this new to San Francisco production stars Bryan Himel and Pene Pati who'll share the role of Romeo alongside Nadine Sierra and Amina Idris as Juliet.

Filled with rap, pop, R&B and jazz, it's marvellously dense, visually and aurally, and dramatic. And though they flow seamlessly, the scenes-slash-songs, both personal and political are works of art unto themselves.
Until May 19, 2019
The Jungle registers with a throbbing authenticity only amplified by the superb performances of the large, multinational ensemble and the virtuosic immersive staging.
