Carmen: With contemporary costumes, Bizet’s famous melodies and impressive sets, director John Bell creates a gritty new take on opera’s favourite femme fatale.
Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci: A double dose of desperation and drama in two short tragedies. The result is pure catharsis: everyday tragedy writ large on stage.
King Roger: A powerful tale where paganism and sensuality battle religion and restraint. Szymanowski’s intoxicating, iridescent music is rarely heard on the opera stage, so don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear a 20th-century masterpiece.
There will be an audience of 1500 people on the day.
There are no rules about what to wear when attending the opera. It is always great fun to dress up for the occasion and make a glamorous night of it, but dressing up is not mandatory.
