This week Kristina Mkhitaryan makes her house and role debut at the Bergen National Opera as Giulietta in Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi.
This opera touches on the original love story of Shakespeare’s great Romeo and Juliet, however draws on different strands to create a new opera.
This marks a season of debuts which includes at the Grand Théâtre de Genève (Il Giasone) and Glyndebourne (La traviata). No stranger to Norway, she will return later this season for Carmen at Den Norske Opera.
Watch Kristina perform Giulietta’s aria “O quante volte” here.
I Capuleti e i Montecchi runs from 5 – 11 November 2016. For more information and tickets, see the Bergen National Opera website.
