In partnership with the Battery City Park Authority (BPCA), Teatro Grattacielo presents a full production of Riccardo Zandonai's Giulietta e Romeo with libretto by Arturo Rossato. The Opera is based on Luigi da Porto's original publication: Storia di Giulietta e Romeo con loro pietosa morte avvenuta in Verona.

This is the first written version of Romeo and Juliet as we know it. Luigi da Porto, a writer from Vicenza, published it in 1530, almost 60 years before Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Giulietta e Romeo debuted 100 years ago, on February 14th, 1922, at Costanzi Theater in Rome.
