I Capuleti e i Montecchi

The opening of the 2024 Opera and Ballet Season will be held on 27 September at 8.00 p.m. and on 29 September at 3.30 p.m. (with a Preview for students on 25 September) and will be dedicated to one of Vincenzo Bellini’s greatest masterpieces, I Capuleti e i Montecchi, absent from the Teatro Grande for twelve years.

Based on the Shakespearian tragedy, the title was an immediate success and was programmed in the major Italian theatres, hardly ever suffering, unlike other operas, from periods of poor programming. Composed in just under two months, I Capuleti e i Montecchi was born from yet another encounter between Vincenzo Bellini and librettist Felice Romani. Re-elaborating a text created a few years earlier for Nicola Vaccaj’s Giulietta e Romeo, Bellini reserved the part of Romeo for a mezzo-soprano voice, tracing a tradition of en travesti roles that was almost in disuse at the time, but still strongly present in Italian theatres.
