Vincenzo Bellini's "I Capuleti e i Montecchi" tells of Romeo and Juliet and the family feud that makes it impossible for them to live out their eternal love in this world. But not as blossoming love, but in the dramatic portrayal of the last earthly day of a consolidated couple. The master of bel canto spans his long melodic arcs so directly with the emotions of his characters that every affect gains space and his vision becomes reality: Music "that expresses the word in the most intimate way". With exquisite musical beauty and appeal, the world's most famous lovers conquer the stages of Düsseldorf and Duisburg in a concert performance under the musical direction of David Crescenzi.
