La Boheme at Royal Opera House – 9th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 17th and 19th July 2014
“La Boheme” is one of Puccini’s most powerful operas. It follows the story of two different couples: the penniless poet Rodolfo, who falls in love with the seamstress Mimi, and the painter Marcello, who enjoys the company of an on-off mistress Musetta. The opera’s exploration of the joy, anguish and heartbreak of young love blighted by sudden tragedy, and its succession of passionate arias and duets, makes this the ultimate romantic opera.
Faust at Royal Opera House – 4th, 7th, 11th, 14th, 17th, 22nd and 25th April 2014
The Royal Opera House is putting on a production of Gounod’s grand opera “Faust”. Set in Paris on the eve of the Franco-Prussian War, “Faust” is a tale of romance, temptation, and the battle between relion and satanic powers in the decadent decade of 1870.
Ariadne Auf Naxos at Royal Opera House – 25th, 30th June, 3rd, 10th and 13th July 2014
