The origins of Bellini’s opera I Capuleti e Montecchi offer insight into challenging constraints faced by composers in Italy during the 19th century. After the poor reception of his last opera, Zaira, by early 1830, the composer needed to win back the public's good graces.

I Capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues) is an Italian opera (Tragedia lirica) in two acts by Vincenzo Bellini. The libretto by Felice Romani was a reworking of the story of Romeo and Juliet for an opera by Nicola Vaccai called Giulietta e Romeo and based on the play of the same name by Luigi Scevola written in 1818, thus an Italian source rather than taken directly from William Shakespeare.
