All Met productions in 2020-21 Season have been cancelled


Superstar soprano Anna Netrebko returns in the title role as the explosive diva in Puccini’s best-loved operatic thriller.

Based in Rome during the Napoleonic wars, this tragic tale of passion, murder, lust and love, set against a famously romantic score, is an enduring classic.

Bertrand de Billy conducts Sir David McVicar’s evocative production, with tenor Brian Jagde as Tosca’s impassioned lover, Cavaradossi, and baritone Michael Volle as the sinister Scarpia.

Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci (12A)

Cancelled

The ROH is closed for live performances so there will be no live screenings this Autumn. 

There may be some previous titles released.

The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy.

With thrilling singing and intense drama, ‘Cav and Pag’ distils into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.

Elektra  / Strauss (12A)

Strauss's thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness  in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytåmnestra.
