Mastersingers Of Nuremburg

Until March 10, 2015

A different kind of Wagner epic, The Mastersingers of Nuremberg sees a brand-new production by Richard Jones of the Welsh National Opera, in London for the first time. Jones stages a wonderfully witty and clear reimagining of Wagner's comedy-drama about the 16th-century guild of amateur poets and musicians (the Mastersingers), where there is a fraught tension between creative spirit and conformity in a place obsessed with rules. It is unique from Wagner's other mature operas in that it is comedic, and based on real life, without any supernatural elements that permeates his other works.

La Traviata

Until March 13, 2015

Soprano Elizabeth Zharoff makes her UK debut as the tragic courtesan Violetta in Verdi's operatic masterpiece of forbidden love and selfless actions. La traviata is a resonant tale of society and morality that combines compelling characters with hugely powerful, moving and instantly recognisable melodies, making it one of the most emotionally engaging and popular operas of all time. This production is perfect for opera newcomers, running at less than two hours and featuring an uncluttered stage and 1950's costuming, which adds to the atmospheric feel of the production.

The Indian Queen

Until March 14, 2015

Purcell's final semi-opera is given a new narrative, but still keeps the beloved songs of the original, in this new remastering by ENO impresario Peter Sellars. This new version of The Indian Queen retells the initial confrontation between Europeans and the Mayans of the New World from a new female perspective based on The Lost Chronicles of Terra Firma by Nicaraguan author Rosario Aguilar.

The Pirates of Penzance

May 9-June 27, 2015

All aboard for Mike Leigh's new production of this quintessential Gilbert and Sullivan sea-fairing comic opera! Ever since it's first turn on the London stage in 1880, The Pirates of Penzance has been a firm favourite with opera audiences, enamoured with the tale of Frederic and his life with the colourful Pirates of Penzance and his quest for true love!

Carmen

Bizet's masterpiece sees an updating to the last days of General Franco's dictatorship as Calixto Bieito's acclaimed production of this must-see opera finally makes its way to London after enjoying rave reviews whilst on tour in Europe! Conducted by Sir Richard Armstrong, the eponymous anti-heroine is sung by mezzo-soprano Justina Gringyte alongside the internationally acclaimed tenor Eric Cutler as her lover Jose.
