Live Musical Excerpts: Be serenaded by the passionate melodies of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, brought to life by Lyric Opera of Kansas City’s Resident Artists.

Immersive Storytelling: Dive deep into the epic love story of Romeo and Juliet, with the focus of the evening on storytelling and atmosphere. We'll guide you through the opera's narrative, from the star-crossed lovers' first encounter to their fateful end.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the story, absorb the music, and prepare your heart for Lyric Opera of Kansas City’s upcoming performance of Roméo et Juliette at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in March.
