Romeo has killed the brother of Juliet, Tebaldo shall take vengeance on him and marry Juliet. In a close-up of the last 24 hours, composer and author (Felice Romani) explores the inner world of their characters. With emotionally gripping melodies, combined to an elegiac-melancholic pull and not interrupted by any secret love affair, Bellini's sixth opera, which premiered in 1830 at the La Fenice Theatre in Venice, leads his protagonists to an unforgiving but moving opera finale.
