Notes & Reviews:

This recording of Bellini's opera I Capuleti e i Montecchi, conucted by Bruna Campanelle, features an excellent cast including Katia Ricciarelli (Giulietta) and Dana Montague (Romeo). While the opera may tell the story of the ill-fated love affair between Romeo and Giulietta, it has little else in common with Shakespeare's tragedy. Bellini and Felice Romani turned the source material into a romantic hero story, in which the role of Romeo is performed not by a tenor, but by a mezzo-soprano.
