I had an opportunity to see Romeo+Juliet, performed by the OperaCarolina cast, at the Belk Theater uptown Charlotte. Can I just say – Amazing performance!
I know acting, as well as, singing is a skill that gets perfected over the years, but…acting AND singing, IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE for 3 hours?!?! That’s serious talent.
The entire cast was impressive, and consisted of rising stars, but the main roles of Juliet and Romeo were played by Marie-Eve Munger (Juliet), and Jonathan Boyd (Romeo). The emotions and feelings they both portrayed during the play made the audience feel like we were part of the story!
If OperaCarolina performs this play next year, I definitely recommend seeing it! (I’ll probably be there too)
