Gounod's ROMEO AND JULIET — Moving Moment featuring Pene Pati as Romeo
Seeded by sfopera on 21 Sep 2019
Author: San Francisco Opera
What light through yonder window breaks? That's what tenor Pene Pati asks in his show-stealing turn as Romeo, sitting below Juliet's balcony and marveling at her immense beauty. Composer Charles Gounod draws directly from William Shakespeare's balcony scene in the lyrics for his French adaptation of "Romeo and Juliet," using Romeo's soliloquy as the basis for his aria, "Ah! lève-toi, soleil!"
