I CAPULETI E I MONTECCHI IN ZÜRICH
This summer, Joyce DiDonato returns to the role of Romeo in Bellini’s thrilling I Capuleti e i Montecchi. She brings her “magnificent” portrayal to the Opernhaus Zürich, in a new production from venerated director Christoph Loy, featured as part of Opernhaus’ Bellini cycle. She is joined by Olga Kulchynska as Giulietta, Benjamin Bernheim as Tebaldo, and Roberto Lorenzi as Lorenzo, with Music Director Fabio Luisi leading the Philharmonia Zürich and Chor der Oper Zürich. Performances take place June 21, 24, 27 & 30, and July 5, 7, 9 & 12 at the Hauptbühne Opernhaus.
Ms. DiDonato’s performance as Romeo from San Francisco Opera is also available on DVD; enjoy a trailer of the recording on YouTube.
