Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts one of the most sumptuous scores in the repertoire, leading Gounod’s honeyed adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy. Radiant soprano Nadine Sierra makes her Met role debut as the effervescent Juliette, opposite tenors Stephen Costello and Benjamin Bernheim, in his highly anticipated Met debut, as the ardent Roméo, all amid the romantic realism of Bartlett Sher’s staging.
