Star-crossed lovers Roméo and Juliette meet and fall in love, but are separated by their families' mutual hatred. Murders ensue. Eventually, Roméo and Juliette plan to fake their deaths in a desperate attempt to be together, culminating in an ending for these lovers that is as tragic as it is heartbreakingly beautiful.
Roméo & Juliette, with music by Charles Gounod and libretto by Jules Barbier & Michel Carré, opens in Phoenix on Mar. 2 at Phoenix Symphony Hall and in Tucson on Mar. 9 at the Linda Ronstadt Music Hall.
