Romeo and Juliet (#2709)
This new film adaptation of Charles Goudod's opera stars one of classical music's most popular and successful duos, real-life couple Roberto Alagna and Angela Gheorghiu as Shakespeare's tragically fated lovers. Shot on location, a spectacular medieval castle and its surrounding countryside provide the setting for this timeless tale of warring families and star-crossed lovers. Conductor Anton Guadagno leads the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra through the opera's best-loved arias and duets in this fresh interpretation of Gounod's enduring masterwork. [86 minutes]
