It has been 400 years since Shakespeare also known as ‘The Bard of Avon’ left Earth to wander towards what I assume the Heavens above. Often called ‘the greatest poet that ever lived’ he created many stories that we are familiar with. One being the love story of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Believed to have been written between 1591 and 1595, as most know this tragic tale is about “two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families.” In 1867, Charles Gounod gained great success with his operatic version of Romeo & Juliet. A few months ago I shared my love of the Opera with you. I took my husband to see Beethoven’s one and only opera-Fidelio. It was incredible! Opera Carolina never fails to put on a good show which is why I am thrilled about their production of Romeo and Juliet. It runs January 24th, 28th, and 30th. Not only will I attend but I have been granted a backstage tour. And if that wasn’t enough I will have a chance to chat with Maestro Meena (he’s the Conductor) right before the show. I may even run into Romeo or Juliet…who knows!? It IS a New Year and it’s the perfect time to start checking things off your bucket list. SO, with that said.
Who wants to go see Romeo and Juliet on Opening Day?
