Collaboration with Opera Hong Kong

Opera Hong Kong is proud to present as part of French May Arts Fest, Charles Gounod’s acclaimed opera Roméo et Juliette, in a production that was first performed by Opera Hong Kong in 2016 to popular and critical acclaim. Join us at the Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre for performances on May 10th and 11th at 7:30 pm, with a special matinee performance on May 12th at 3:00 pm. 

Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette is one of the most successful adaptations of William Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. The five-act opera, directed and designed by Arnaud Bernard, will be performed in French by some of France’s leading young opera stars and feature the Opera Hong Kong Chorus and Opera Hong Kong Orchestra under the baton of Roberto Gianola

Roméo et Juliette premiered in Paris in 1867 and quickly became a popular fixture of the operatic repertoire globally, with its soulful duets and powerful choruses combining Gounod’s passionate music with a moving French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré. Filled with emotion and drama, Roméo et Juliette helped establish the operatic genre of “drame lyrique”.  French shining opera stars Chloé Chaume / Aurélie Jarjaye as Juliette, and Thomas Bettinger / Kevin Amiel as Roméo, will join international and local singers in this production by Warren Mok. 

Tickets are available for booking online via URBTIX from $1,080, $920, $720, $620, $420 and $220. Limited concession tickets are available for full-time students, citizens aged 60 or above, people with physical impairment and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) recipients.
