I Capuleti ed i Montecchi, by Bellini

I have experienced this opera live, but only in concert. That was in Oslo Concert House in 2001. I recommend the opera on CD with Edita Gruberova as Giulietta and Agnes Baltsa as Romeo.

Both the video from Youtube and the CD recording is from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (London) 1984. The singing is superb!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lessons from the opera: Don't try to get your daughter to marry the one you like in stead of the one she LOVES. If the daughter's lover is the son of your enemy you should try to get to know him....  And naturally the final lesson ONLY IN OPERA is Death Beautiful and with wonderful singing.

You should buy the CD. The music is great.
