Author: San Francisco Opera
Haunted by the ghost of her murdered cousin, Juliet struggles with the options laid out before her. Her father is forcing her to marry the nobleman Paris, without realizing she's already married — to the son of a rival family, Romeo! A strange vial offers her a grim alternative: a potion that would allow her to feign death, thereby allowing her to escape the forced marriage and reunite with Romeo. Soprano Nadine Sierra summons her courage as she weighs the options, in Charles Gounod's famous "Potion" aria.
