Now Charles Gounod’s version of the Shakespearean tragedy –Roméo et Juliette– has returned to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.
In addition to this role, Saimir will perform in some of the most important theaters in the world such as: Vienna in September, at Schamp Elise in October and to continue the coming year in March at the new Tokyo National Theater.
