An explosion of love and treachery.
Delighted to welcome back Iurie Gisca as Scarpia and the international stars, Maria Tonina, Elena Dee and Alyona Kistenyova*.
Brilliantly sung- The Times (Royal Albert Hall)
This traditional production is a heady mixture of true love, torture and treachery, with two of the best roles for tenor and soprano, plus a truly blood curdling villain. A magnificent new set with towering marble pillars, fabulous costumes, and featuring a boys' choir with a shepherd’s boy solo, this most popular of operas is sure to delight with its tender, moving arias Vissi d’arte and E Lucevan le Stelle.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Please note: some seats may have a restricted view of the surtitles.

There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
