ROMÉO ET JULIETTE
TYBALT | THEATER AN DER WIEN
“It was the nightingale and not the lark.” This perhaps most famous sentence from perhaps the most famous love story of all time also found its way into Charles Gounod's “Romeo and Juliet” opera, which first delighted audiences at the Paris World Exhibition in 1867. Mr. Moore appears as Tybalt in this production of Romeo and Juliet, directed by Marie-Eve Signeyrole.
