Opera Omaha is offering discount tickets to UNMC employees and students to "The Capulets and the Montagues," Vincenzo Bellini's operatic retelling of the Romeo and Juliet story. 

Show times are:

  • 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 15
  • 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 17

Previously slated to debut in Opera Omaha's 2020 ONE Festival, Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece is a seldom-seen telling of Romeo and Juliet, the infamous star-crossed lovers engulfed by rival political factions on the brink of war. Most commonly known through Shakespeare but inspired here from writings of the Italian Renaissance, "I Capuleti e i Montecchi" gives thrilling voice to one of the world’s most overwhelming and vital love stories.

This new production by ONE Festival artistic director James Darrah is a dark and visually rich exploration of love and loss illuminated by a powerful ensemble of world-class artists, designers and dancers, including the return of soprano Andriana Chuchman ("A Flowering Tree," "Flight") as Juliet. True to Bellini’s original score, Romeo is performed by a mezzo soprano, the acclaimed Cecelia Hall, in her Opera Omaha debut.
