Cecilia Bartoli about “Romeo and Juliet”

If Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, was merely a distant, dream destination during my childhood, it was to become a very real place in my teenage years – when I performed one of my first roles – Alboino in Fioravanti’s Bertoldo, Bertoldino e Cacasenno. Unfortunately, the première was a complete disaster (including whistling, roaring, boos and stamping of feet) for all concerned.

Whispering sweet nothings on Juliet’s balcony or hiding love letters in the cracks of mediaeval walls were therefore no longer the order of the day – I would have loved to give the faithless creature some drops of poison myself…!
