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.

Originally The New Theatre, it opened on Boxing Day, 1912. It went through several iterations, being renamed once before becoming the Opera House in 1920. It's also been used for different functions; as a cinema in WW2, then a bingo hall before reopening as a theatre again in 1984. Since, it has hosted magnificent shows like Barnum and Phantom of the Opera.
