Cincinnati Opera tackles Shakespeare’s tragic romance.

With music by Charles Gounod and a libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, this tale of star-crossed lovers from dueling families is sung in French with projected translations.

Soprano Nicole Cabell sings Juliet to her Romeo, rising opera star Matthew White, in his CO debut.

Called “sparkling and stylish” with “captivating visuals” by the Twin Cities Arts Reader, this production — rated PG — features classic and opulent costuming.

After Saturday’s performance of Romeo and Juliet, Cincinnati Opera is celebrating its 13th-annual Pride Night at 10:30 p.m. with a party featuring drinks, music, snacks and décor by Joe Rigotti; tickets for Pride Night are $30.

7:30 p.m. Thursday (June 27) and Saturday (June 29). $35-$190. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine,
