Roméo and Juliet

Roméo et Juliette

A recording from the Vienna State Opera, Vienna 2001

«Roméo et Juliette» was Gounod's last great stage success. The Paris Universal Exhibition, which took place in the same year as the work was premiered - 1867 - contributed to the popularity of this opera beyond France's borders. The opera tells the story of Romeo and Juliet and their tragic end, which to a certain extent is a popular version of «Tristan and Isolde». The world premières of these two works took place only two years apart.
