Opera Omaha’s new production by ONE Festival Artistic Director James Darrah is a dark and visually rich exploration of love and loss illuminated by a powerful ensemble of world-class artists, designers and dancers, including the return of soprano Andriana Chuchman (2015- A Flowering Tree, 2017- Flight) as Juliet.  True to Bellini’s original score, acclaimed mezzo soprano Daniela Mack makes her festival debut as Romeo.
