Romeo and Juliet are the quintessential lovers, and many composers have been inspired to set Shakespeare’s like-named tragedy to music. Bellini’s version takes its title from the names of the feuding families, the Capulets and the Montagues. Premièred in Venice in 1830, this bel canto gem is one of the most beautiful of its kind. When the lovers’ voices desperately intertwine in the finale, handkerchiefs had better be within easy reach!
Over the years the parts of Giulia and Romeo (a trousers role) have often served as touchstones for famous sopranos. The definitive readings of these roles betray the taste of their times for bel canto – beautiful singing. Adela Zaharia and Tara Erraught stand for a successful young generation of bel canto divas from both sides of the Atlantic. Spanish conductor Ramón Tebar has a special predilection for Italian opera from Rossini to Puccini.
