In Roméo et Juliette, he retells the story of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy and most passionate romance in five acts. Under the artistic direction of Ramón Tebar, Opera Naples and the Naples Philharmonic present dazzling waltzes, infectious music, ravishing costumes, and a zealous tale of love.
