Roméo et Juliette Teatro Carlo Felice, Genova February 18, 2012

Andrea Bocelli and his partner Veronica are welcomed by the euphoric sight of a water city that all of a sudden is covered with snow. The première of “Roméo et Juliette” is still a month away (planned for 24th February) when the dream machine starts to move: below the tower of the lyrical theatre, on the 3rd floor, the preparations begin. The roads of the city centre are covered with posters promoting the event. The masterpiece by Charles Gounod has been missing from Genoa for one hundred years and this strange, disenchanted port city of Northern Italy finds itself waiting with trepidation for the return of the most moving love story of all times, the greatest lesson of love of all times.Steep, in between the mountains and the sea, underneath a blanket of snow, the capital of Liguria softens its sharp corners (consisting of rocks, intertwining alleys, millenary churches): Genoa holds its breath and muffles the arrogance of its everyday voice. Therefore, in a unique, lactescent magic, it welcomes its very own Roméo. Read the full reportage
