Following a sell out tour of it's 1940's inspired Cosi Fan Tutte, Opera Holloway present a fresh new contemporary take on one of the most famous love stories of all times. Performing alongside piano and string ensemble conducted by Lewis Gaston, this show will star Sophie Dicks as Romeo and Callie Gaston as Giulietta.
