Roméo et Juliette: A New Twist on a Classic Tale

April 21, 2011

So one of my accounts for PR Lab for this semester is The College of Fine Arts. As Account Supervisor my baby for the semester has been promoting the Opera Roméo et Juliette, specifically the Friday April 22 performance. My team and I have worked round the clock to make this performance perfect, and highly attended by BU students. One of our promotional pet projects was a behind-the-scenes video featuring some of the designers in the production including costume, set and lighting design.

Another project was planning an executing a pre-party prior to the performance. We settled on the venue Our House East where we are throwing a Masquerade-themed pre-party for the graduating Seniors. The event will have free appetizers, masquerade-themed swag and a cash bar.

The performance is an all-French opera rendition of the Shakespeare classic with English supertitles by Allison Voth. The opera is a collaboration between CFA’s School of Music Opera Institute and the School of Theatre and is hosted by CFA graduate students. The music is by Charles Gounod and the Libretto by Jules Barber and Michel Carré.

Roméo et Juliette will run from April 21-24, beginning at 7:30 PM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 2:00 pm on Sunday at the Boston University Huntington Theatre. Tickets are free with a BU ID, so don’t miss out. Tickets for BU alumni, WGBH members, Huntington subscribers, students and senior citizens are $15, and $20 to the general public.

The Huntington Theatre is located at 264 Huntington Avenue. Our House East is located at 52 Gainsborough Street. To buy your tickets online, visit the Boston Theatre Scene or call the Box Office at (617) 933-8600.
