Range Je veux vivre dans ce rêve

Je veux vivre dans ce rêve , a setting by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, was composed by Charles Gounod in 1867 (G Major) and premiered the same year. This aria takes part in act I of his opera, Roméo et Juliette.

This famous opéra of Charles Gounod is based on the eponym play, written by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. The libretto follows very closely the original play. It was premiered at the Théâtre Lyrique of Paris on the 27th of April 1867 and met immediate success.

The opera opens on a short chorus staging the rivalry between two powerful families in Verona: the Montagus and Capulets.
In the next scene, while Tybalt is talking to Paris about Juliet, she appears with her father. Romeo and his friends enter, disguised. Roméo is reserved and wants to leave: he has been having dark premonitions lately but Mercutio convinces him to enjoy the party. When Romeo sees Juliet through an open door, it is love at first sight. Juliette, on her side, is listening to her nanny Gertrude telling her how Paris seems to love her. She expresses her lack of interest for marrying him and her wish to live like in her dream in her aria: Je veux vivre dans ce rêve.
