Romeo and Juliet is one of the world's most well-known love stories -- a timeless tale of two star-crossed lovers set among 13th century violence in Verona, Italy. In I Capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues), Bellini's operatic version of this dramatic story, Romeo and Juliet are instead Romeo and Giulietta, two teenagers from rival political factions (rather than two fighting families) who fall in love with tragic consequences. Filled with graceful arias and long, sinuous melodies that helped define the bel canto style, I Capuleti e i Montecchi will be brought to life by the Washington Concert Opera with the help of Metropolitan Opera star Olga Peretyatko as Giulietta and Seattle Opera's Artist of the Year, Kate Lindsey, as Romeo.
