Don’t Miss: Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, August 10-30

Mozart's hometown hosts concerts by the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, along with many a-list recitals. But as always, opera and theater are attracting the most buzz. Featured is a new production of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette by Bartlett Sher (known for his acclaimed Broadway revival of South Pacific at Lincoln Center Theater) featuring Anna Netrebko and Piotr Beczala as the star-crossed lovers and with the young conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin in the pit.
