In an Opera North performance given at the Grand Theatre in Leeds, John Fulljames directs Gounod's opera based on Shakespeare' s tragic love story, with rising stars Leonardo Capalbo as Romeo and Slovenian soprano Bernarda Bobro in her British debut as Juliette.

When Rome and Juliette meet at a party in Verona, they instantly fall in love with each other and marry in secret shortly after.
