Description Love and tragedy intertwine in Bellini’s take on the original heartbreaker. Unmistakable melodies soar with rich lyricism and sublime beauty as inevitable devastation unfolds on stage. The ultimate tale of doomed love marks the thrilling finale to Victorian Opera’s Bellini concert series. The rarely- heard masterpiece draws two of Australia’s finest singers home as Romeo and Juliet; internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Caitlin Hulcup and superstar soprano Jessica Pratt.
