SYNOPSIS

The Montague and Capulet families have been enemies for generations. Juliet, the daughter of the Capulets, and Romeo, the only son of the Montagues, fall in love with each other. But their love can only be secret, because the quarrel between their parents escalates further and further, and so it comes to a tragic end.

The composer Boris Blacher chose an unusual form for his chamber opera Romeo and Juliet, which he wrote in 1943, during the Second World War: A chorus accompanies and comments on the action and itself takes on many of the roles that influence Romeo and Juliet's decisions in Shakespeare's drama. The result is an intense, multi-layered chamber work, unusual and emotionally gripping for a young audience.
