Event description
Bellini’s beautiful version of Romeo and Juliet, re-imagined and brought to life by the rising stars of opera.

About this Event

In 12 hours, her father tells her, Giulietta will be married and her country at war. But Giulietta has a secret, one that could change everything.

And the secret doesn’t want to stay hidden much longer.

Join us for a candle-lit summer evening of star-crossed lovers, music and maybe a cocktail or two…

A Romeo and Juliet before Shakespeare, transformed by the stunning music of Bellini, and brought to life by rising stars from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The “spellbinding” (Classical Source) Australian Singing Competition-winner Zoe Drummond plays Giulietta, and her Romeo is Elsa Roux Chamoux - “[Elsa] transported the audience with the brilliance of her voice and the emotion of her performance” (Le Dauphiné Libéré).
