New York City Opera presents Romeo and Juliet

September 8, 7 pm9 pm.

New York City Opera’s Bryant Park summer series concludes with Romeo and Juliet. Gounod’s perennial favorite brings Shakespeare’s play to life through some of the most beautiful music in the French repertoire. Celebrated conductor Maestro Joseph Rescigno will be at the helm, accompanied by members of the City Opera Orchestra. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis. Performances are designed to be enjoyed casually – no tickets required – with ample seating available and free picnic blankets for audience members to borrow.  For anyone unable to attend in person, free livestream broadcasts of the performances will be available nationwide via Bryant Park’s website and social media platforms.

Attendees may bring their own food or purchase from on-site food and beverage vendors near the Lawn. At most performances, attendees can purchase food from a rotating line-up of local NYC vendors curated by Hester Street Fair. At all performances, Stout NYC offers cheese and charcuterie boards as well as a selection of beer, wine, frosé, and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase.
