Bellini: “I Capuleti e I Montecchi”

Opera in the Heights’s Romeo and Juliet, Brandy Lynn Hawkins and Julia Ebner, join us in the Geary Performance Studio for excerpts from the company’s new production of  I Capuleti e I Montecchi, Vincenzo Bellini’s glorious bel canto setting of the tale of the ill-fated young couple.

Mezzo-soprano Brandy Lynn Hawkins (Romeo), soprano Julia Ebner (Giulietta); artistic director/conductor Enrique Carreón-Robeldo; stage-director Carlos Conde; and accompanist Catherine Schaefer talk with St.John Flynn.
