Roméo et Juliette
Domingo; Netrebko, Alagna, Gunn, Lloyd
Domingo; Gasdia, Kraus, Schexnayder, Plishka
Lewis; Blegen, Corelli, Carlson, Gill
From their first meeting until their tragic deaths, Jussi Björling and Bidú Sayão are a Romeo and Juliet you won’t be able to forget. Their achingly beautiful voices convey all the passion and impetuousness of Shakespeare’s poignant teenage lovers. But at the same time Björling and Sayao sing with an elegance and charm so necessary for French opera of the Belle Epoque.
