VERDI’S MACBETH: Tuesday 2 & Friday 5 April
Sung in English

The witches have a prophecy: Macbeth will be king. But royalty comes at a
price. Follow Macbeth in a blood-soaked journey to the throne and watch a
guilt-ridden Lady Macbeth descend into the depths of despair.

MOZART’S IDOMENEO: Wednesday 3 & Saturday 6 April
Sung in Italian with English surtitles

Returning from the Trojan war and in the midst of a storm, King Idomeneo
promises the raging seas he will sacrifice the first person he meets in return
for safe passage. Cruelly, the first person he encounters is his only son,
Idamante. This is an opera exploring royalty, high ideals and deep emotions.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles

Elizabeth I shows the woman behind the monarch. The queen had the
reputation of a woman who ruled with her head and silenced her heart – but
writers and composers remained fascinated with her private life and rivalry
with her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots. Rossini’s opera contrasts the private
and public spheres of her life, culminating in a virtuosic showdown between
the virgin queen, her councillor, her love and his wife.
