The first time Hector Belioz saw Romeo and Juliet, he didn't understand a word that was said. But the French composer was so moved that he immediately decided he would learn English, marry the lead actress, and adapt the play into a magnificent symphonyand he was successful on all three counts. His Romeo et Juliette is an emotional tour de force; men in the audience may find themselves hopelessly in love with soprano Ekaterina Gubanova as a result. Consider yourself warned.
