The theme of forbidden love is, indeed, timeless, and Verona's doomed lovers have inspired plays, novels and movies, as well as ballets and operas, for centuries.

Based on Renaissance legend (rather than Shakespeare's play), a longstanding political feud drives the drama in Bellini's opera, adding a fascinating layer to this bel canto masterpiece. The score's vocal fireworks are tempered by elegant and luminously beautiful duets illustrating Bellini's passionate love affair with the human voice.
After nearly a decade of critically acclaimed performances and Grammy award-winning recordings, Joyce DiDonato returns to Lyric Opera fresh from yet another triumph as Romeo in the San Francisco Opera production of The Capulets and the Montagues.

“DiDonato’s voice is a marvel – tender and expressive in Bellini’s long-breathed melodies, mercurial in the opera’s most intricate passage work – and her ornamentation is focused and flawless.” — Opera News. Kevin Newbury directs and Lyric Opera Artistic Director Ward Holmquisti will conduct members of The Kansas City Symphony.
