Rigoletto (Verdi)
Tuesday 16 January7.15pm


The Royal Opera

Rigoletto

David McVicar’s acclaimed production of Verdi’s potent and tragic opera is conducted by Alexander Joel, with an excellent cast led by Dimitri Platanias as Rigoletto, Lucy Crowe as Gilda and Michael Fabiano as the Duke of Mantua.

The corruption of innocence is at the heart of this production for the Royal Opera. Musical highlights include the exuberant ‘La donna è mobile’, Gilda’s exquisite, plaintive duets with Rigoletto and the Duke, and the gorgeous Act III quartet weaving the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion.

Tosca

Jonathan Kent’s production of Puccini's Tosca for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. Dan Ettinger conducts a star cast led by Adrianne Pieczonka as Floria Tosca, Joseph Calleja as Mario Cavaradossi and Gerald Finley as Baron Scarpia.  For opera aficionados the opportunity to enjoy the same opera by two such wonderful companies as the Met and the Royal Opera in such close succession is quite intriguing.

Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014.

With powerful designs by Bob Crowley and atmospheric music by Joby Talbot, The Winter’s Tale is a masterful modern narrative ballet.

Carmen (Bizet)
Tuesday 6 March6.45pm


The Royal Opera

Carmen

This ever-popular opera is given a fresh point of view in Barrie Kosky’s highly physical production, originally created for Frankfurt Opera. The Australian director is one of the world’s most sought-after opera directors, whose Royal Opera debut with Shostakovich’s The Nose in 2016 was greeted with delight. For Carmen, sung by Anna Goryachova he has devised a far-from-traditional version, incorporating music written by Bizet for the score but not usually heard, and giving a new voice to the opera’s endlessly fascinating central character.
