Bill White
Fanfare, March 2017

…Alagna and Gheorghiu perform very well and sing excellently in a very attractive setting in this unfortunate Cliff Notes presentation of Roméo et Juliette. Both are a trifle mature to portray the tragic teenaged couple, but operagoers are used to that, and no teenagers can sing like this pair. © 2017 Fanfare Read complete review

My Classical Notes, December 2016

Shakespeare’s lovers never looked and sounded as good as in this romantic film adaptation of Charles Gounod’s beloved opera Roméo et Juliette, starring two of classical music’s most popular and successful couples, Roberto Alagna and Angela Gheorghiu.

Conductor Anton Guadagno leads the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra through the opera’s beautiful arias and duets in this fresh interpretation of Gounod’s masterwork. © 2016 My Classical Notes Read complete review

Pizzicato, August 2016

Filmed in 2002 already at the beautiful castle of Zvikov (Czech Republic), this production of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette is one nicely staged opera film, musically of a pretty good quality. © 2016 Pizzicato
