One of the most well known love stories of all time will be presented in opera form at The Arts Station.

Fernie Friends of Opera is proud to present Romeo et Juliette by Gonoud.

The production stars Roberta Alagna and Leontina Vaduva as the star-crossed lovers, with Charles Mackerras conducting the Royal Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

Have your tissues ready for the final scene in the amazing retelling of Shakespeare’s immortal world. Alagna combines French style with Italian bravura and Vaduva has a voice with sweetness and vulnerability, creating operatic magic every time they take the stage.

The show will start at 7 p.m. Friday. Admission is by donation.
