Bellini's radiant retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is a beacon in the bel canto tradition. San Francisco Opera's co-production features two of the greatest voices in bel canto together for the first time: mezzo Joyce DiDonato and soprano Nicole Cabell.

The production, directed by Vincent Broussard and featuring costumes by Christian Lecroix, is captured in brilliant HD.
