Damrau makes her role debut as Juliette in Bartlett Sher's new production, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. Elliot Madore sings Mercutio and Mikhail Petrenko sings Frere Laurent. Sher's staging is a La Scala production, initially presented by the Salzburg Festival, where it premiered in 2008.
This performance was originally transmitted live on January 21, 2017.
