A winning cast comes together for Phelim McDermott’s clever vision of Mozart’s comedy about the sexes, set in a carnival-esque environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island. Manipulating the action are the Don Alfonso of Christopher Maltman and the Despina of Tony Award–winner Kelli O’Hara, with Amanda Majeski, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka as the pairs of young lovers who test each other’s faithfulness. David Robertson conducts.

Macbeth (Verdi)
Wednesday 4 April7.15pm

ROH Opera Live:


Verdi’s life-long love affair with Shakespeare’s works began with Macbeth, a play he considered to be ‘one of the greatest creations of man’. With his librettist, Francesco Maria Piave, Verdi set out to create ‘something out of the ordinary’. Their success is borne out in every bar of a score that sees Verdi at his most theatrical: it bristles with demonic energy. Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and conducted by Antonio Pappano.

Opera The Swansea City Opera
The Barber of Seville
Saturday 21 April7.30pm

The Barber of Seville (Rossini)

Live on our stage Swansea City Opera present a revival of their hugely successful 2011 production of the Barber of Seville, Rossini’s  most famous opera - razor-sharp and full of twists and turns.

A young Spanish nobleman, Count Almaviva, is in love with the beautiful and rich Rosina, ward of the lecherous Doctor Bartolo, who plans his own marriage to her. Along comes the meddling Figaro, the town barber, and suddenly we have all the ingredients for confusion and mayhem.

From Figaro’s famous entrance aria ‘Largo al factotum’ to the frenzy of the Act I finale, The Barber of Seville makes for a rollicking evening’s entertainment, don’t miss this ultimate feel-good opera that is always cheerful and fun.

Designed by Gary McCann with costumes by Gabriella Ingram, directed by Brendan Wheatley and accompanied by the Swansea City Opera orchestra.

Swansea City opera is known across the UK for its high, quality and engaging performances of comic opera and this sparkling performance will be no exception. Sung in English the production is set in period Seville, with outrageous 18th century costumes that complement the fizz and flare of Rossini’s musical genius, it is perfect both for the established operagoer, and those seeking to engage with opera for the first time.

6.15pm - There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley

Broadcast ROH Ballet Live: Bernstein Centenary Thursday 3 May7.15pm

Royal Ballet Live from Covent Garden:


Kenneth MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. MacMillan found new sympathy with
 the capricious Manon and her struggle 
to escape poverty. His spectacular ensemble scenes for the whole Company create vivid portraits of both Paris and New Orleans. But it is Manon and Des Grieux’s impassioned pas de deux – recalling the intensity of MacMillan’s earlier Romeo
and Juliet – that drive this tragic story.
