  • Glyndebourne: Béatrice et Bénédict (Live)

    Runtime: 140 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Love conquers all in Berlioz's sparkling take on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing

    From Elizabeth and Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, to Hermione and Ron in the Harry Potter series, the age-old premise of verbal sparring to mask true feelings of love or passion is employed to magnificent effect in Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict.

    Berlioz selected the sunniest and funniest elements of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and set them to ravishing music to create this witty love-hate duel. The opera's overture explodes with a buoyant sense of fun and elegant wit and there are several splendid numbers for the female characters, especially the sublime Act I duet-nocturne, described by one critic as a 'marvel of indescribable lyrical beauty'.

    Conducted by Robin Ticciati and seen through the unique vision of director Laurent Pelly, Berlioz's comic gem makes its long-awaited Glyndebourne premiere in Festival 2016.

    With the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus.

    Sung in French with English subtitles.

    Part of the Shakespeare400 celebrations.

  • Berliner Philharmoniker LIVE: Season Opening Concert

    Runtime: 130 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Join the Berliner Philharmoniker and its chief conductor Sir Simon Rattle for the opening concert of the 2016/2017 season with Gustav Mahler's brilliant Symphony No. 7 and Pierre Boulez’s Éclat. Rattle unsparingly shows a Mahler who scornfully breaks apart the entire 19th century, anticipating the catastrophes of the 20th century. In the opening movement, the solemn style seems like an ironic swan song to the model of the symphony, and in the jubilant Rondo-Finale, one can perceive a parody of Wagner’s Meistersinger overture. Broadcast in HD with stunning 5.1 surround sound, this concert also includes exclusive interviews and programme insights. "One of today's greatest conductors" Gramophone on Sir Simon Rattle

    With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.

  • Turandot on Sydney Harbour (2016)

    Runtime: 140 mins     Rating: LIVE

    In 2016, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour presents Turandot: a story of a death-marked love told with salt in the air, light on the sails and the city skyline reflected in your glass. It's the best of Sydney in a single evening: singing, sunsets and sparkling wine, in perfect harmony. Join us at the water’s edge in a pop-up opera house with purpose-built bars, restaurants and a grandstand under the stars.
    Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng's take on this Chinese fable will be one for the history books.
    Turandot is a beautiful and powerful princess, who challenges her many suitors to answer three riddles on pain of death. No one has ever succeeded.
    Calaf is a brave prince from a foreign land, who falls instantly in love with the princess.
    Despite the wishes of his exiled father and the pleas of a slave-girl who loves him, he rings the gong and declares his love for the princess.
    She presents her riddles, and in triumph, the unknown prince answers. Turandot despairs and the prince takes pity - offering the ice-cold princess a riddle of his own. But Calaf’s riddle risks more than his own life - everyone else’s hangs in the balance.

  • Opera de Paris: Samson Et Dalila (Live)

    Runtime: 170 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Lightning streaks through the skies as Dalila declares her love to Samson in one of the finest arias of romantic opera. "My heart awakens to your voice like a flower to the kiss of dawn." An enchanting yet treacherous beauty… When the thunder at last rumbles, Dalila betrays Samson and offers him up to his enemies: "Come up, for this time he has shown me all his heart", she whispers to them in the night (The Old Testament, Book of Judges). Based on a violent and erotic biblical story, Saint-Saëns's opera – composed in 1877, much to Liszt's insistence – would not be performed at the Palais Garnier until fifteen years later. This first Parisian performance in 1892 included the hitherto unperformed "Dance Of The Priestesses". Nevertheless, it became one of the most performed French operas in the world, together with Faust and Carmen. Conducted by Philippe Jordan, this new production brings back a repertoire masterpiece that has not been performed at the Paris Opera for twenty-five years. Ever sensational as a femme fatale, 2 plays the murderous Priestess in a production staged by Damiano Michieletto.

  • Gran Teatre Del Liceu: Macbeth (Live)

    Runtime: 150 mins     Rating: LIVE

    A tribute to the Shakespeare anniversary with a powerful and surreal staging of the classic, Macbeth.
    General of the victorious Scottish armies, Macbeth hears a prophecy from three witches that predict he will be the next King of Scotland. Believing this premonition, his wife encourages him to kill the King. His divine right drives Macbeth to be bloodthirsty with friends and opponents alike but alone and racked with guilt, he faces his last battle and death.

    Giuseppe Verdi felt inspired by Shakespeare's work and his devotion led to the first opera based on one of the writer's texts. Verdi's enthusiasm gave him the will of achieving "something extraordinary" with the iconic writers work. In this version, Christof Loy directs the action in a classic timeless space with surrealistic touches dominated by blacks and whites, adding to the great dramatic intensity.

  • Royal Ballet: Anastasia (Live)

    Runtime:      Rating: LIVE

    An identity in crisis; a country in revolution. Anastasia is a ballet about one of the great historical mysteries of the 20th century, only recently solved. At the height of the Russian Revolution the royal family were executed, but afterwards a young woman appeared – apparently a surviving royal princess, the Grand Duchess Anastasia. Known as 'Anna Anderson', she couldn't remember her past and she was presumed to be an imposter. Many wanted to forget the massacre and the Revolution; many believed, or hoped, that a princess could have survived, a remnant of the old world. One of Kenneth MacMillan's first creations on becoming Director of The Royal Ballet in 1970, Anastasia is a dramatic and haunting exploration of Anna's nightmare of memory and identity. To music by Tchaikovsky and Martinů, we follow the events leading to the murder of a family, and Anna's confused dreams – or memories. A powerful, psychological challenge for the principal ballerina, this is a rare opportunity to see a landmark ballet by a major choreographer.

  • Royal Opera: Les Contes D'Hoffman (Live)

    Runtime: 210 mins     Rating: LIVE

    The Royal Opera's lavish production of Les Contes d'Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann), Offenbach's masterpiece, is a favourite with audiences. Created by Academy Award-winning film director John Schlesinger, this production brings alive a 19th-century world of romance, comedy, mystery and menace. At the centre of these extraordinary tales of clockwork dolls, magical glasses, ghostly voices and sensual courtesans is the vivid imagination of the drunken Romantic poet Hoffmann. Charismatic young tenor Vittorio Grigolo is Hoffmann – compelled to tell the story of his lovers who, he believes, have all been stolen by a succession of arch villains. Superb baritone Thomas Hampson performs all four villains. The music includes the famous 'Barcarolle' and the stunning showpiece numbers are perfect vehicles for the vocal virtuosity of Sofia Fomina as the clockwork doll Olympia, Christine Rice as the courtesan Giulietta, and Sonya Yoncheva as Hoffmann's last love Antonia.

  • Opera de Paris: A Midsummers Night's Dream (Live)

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Numerous choreographers have delved into Shakespeare to find dramatic material for their ballets, beginning with Jean-Georges Noverre, an ardent defender of the "action ballet" and Marius Petipa, who was the first to use Mendelssohn's stage music. George Balanchine, who also loved the score, would prove no exception. In 1962 he created his version of Shakespeare's comedy for New York City Ballet. Faithful to the Bard's vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment. One of George Balanchine's rare narrative ballets, A Midsummer Night's Dream is entering the Paris Opera Ballet's repertoire. The sets and costumes for this production have been designed by another magician of the stage, Christian Lacroix.

    Runtime: 165 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Puccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria 'Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Despite serious initial problems with the Austrian censors who had control over northern Italian theatres at the time, the opera Rigoletto had a triumphant premiere at La Fenice in Venice on 11 March 1851.
    It is considered by many to be the first of the operatic masterpieces of Verdi's middle-to-late career. Its tragic story revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto and Rigoletto's beautiful daughter Gilda. The opera's original title, La maledizione (The Curse), refers to the curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter had been seduced by the Duke with Rigoletto's encouragement. The curse comes to fruition when Gilda likewise falls in love with the Duke and eventually sacrifices her life to save him from the assassins hired by her father.

    George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while the fire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in 'Diamonds'. Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.

    Runtime:      Rating: LIVE

    This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after World War II, and one of the Company's first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck's brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton's beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi's opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.

    "Before the carnival is over, all Rome will love my Cinderella…" Thus spoke Rossini in 1817, in the aftermath of the disastrous opening night, firmly convinced that his pumpkin would be transformed into a sumptuous carriage. The future was to prove him right. However, in moving from Perrault's tale to the opera, the humble servant who dreams of going to the ball has lost all her magical attributes: here there is no fairy godmother to transform mice into horses, rats into coachmen and lizards into footmen with a wave of her wand. And it is not a fur slipper but a bracelet that the beauty leaves behind for her prince, quite deliberately, challenging him to find her again. The Enlightenment had lit its fires throughout Europe and La Cenerentola focused on the burning issues of the day, confronting social divisions to reveal the crinoline beneath the rags. Guillaume Gallienne, member of the Comédie-Française, stages his first opera.
