The year 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. Joining the worldwide celebration, Loyola Opera presents Roméo et Juliette, composer Charles Gounod's adaptation of the playwright's timeless tale of "star-crossed lovers." The performances, sung in French with English supertitles, will offer celebrated arias, passionate duets and stirring choruses, as well as one of the most famous sword fights in all of opera!
