ROH LIVE: THE QUEEN OF SPADES
The Royal Opera

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves
and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production
that has already garnered fivestar reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere.
In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires
Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.
This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.

ROH LIVE: LA TRAVIATA
The Royal Opera

From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is
one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society,
but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending.
The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera
at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour,
from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion.
Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

ROH LIVE: LA TRAVIATA
Wednesday 30th January 2019 - 6.45pm


I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare, premiering at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your piece of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?
Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English’.
His other work includes Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.

Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

an opera which demands the very best of singers for its powerful music and the fullest theatrical treatment for
its story of bitter revenge pursued across miles and years.

ROH LIVE: FAUST
The Royal Opera

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains
one of the most constantly enthralling.
Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès.
Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle –
the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris.
Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers,
performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset.
Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s
familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.
Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

ROH LIVE: ROMEO & JULIET
The Royal Ballet

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet,
Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic.
The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.
Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers.
The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts
into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.
