I can feel deep into Giuliettas soul explains Katia Ricciarelli. The world famous and distinguished Italian star soprano fascinates as Giulietta in Vincenzo Bellinis I capuleti e i Montecchi alongside Diana Montague (as Romeo), Dano Raffanti (Tebaldo), Macello Lippi (Capellio) and Antonio Salvadori (Lorenzo).
This opera is inspired by the tragic love story of Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet. It is an opera about power, hate, jealousy, rivalry, love. The role of the Giulietta was one of the high points of Katia Ricciarellis career.
