Romeo et Juliette (Gounod)





Tickets: $25 adult, $23 Catamount Arts member, $16 student

When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, "the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together." Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. Bartlett Sher’s new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18thcentury milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.

This is an on-screen event.

Apres Ski Live Music in the Bear's Den - Rumblecat
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM





Join us in the Bear's Den every Saturday afternoon for live music featuring some of the region's top bands playing folk, funk, classic rock, contemporary covers and everything in between!

 

Around 2013, Rumblecat appeared mysteriously on the side of the road somewhere between Macon, Motown, and New York City. They hitched a ride to Burlington, VT, tried some beer and maple syrup, and decided to stay a while. Their music is a funky rock’n’roll gumbo seasoned with sweet harmonies, sizzling solos, and hearty grooves.

They’ve shared bills with such diverse acts as Fuel, Popa Chubby, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Rumblecat was awarded “Best in State: Vermont” at the 2016 New England Music Awards. Their debut album, ‘Til the Neighbors Shout, was released in April 2016.
