A romance, a tragedy and a thriller – travel to 19th century Rome with Puccini’s passionate, political opera. Conducted by Oksana Lyniv, Elena Stikina (Floria Tosca), Bryan Hymel (Mario Cavaradossi) and Alexey Markov (Baron Scarpia) bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory. From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Tony and Academy Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.

We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

In Pursuit of Maud is the tale of Igor and Maud. Igor is a simple soul. He lives in a castle with his mistress ‘Mad’ Scientist Maud, and together they do mad scientist things like generating electricity by rubbing two cats together or creating an octopus with the head of a vole. You know…normal stuff.

But one day the pair attempt a brain swapping procedure between Maud and an albatross (she wanted to experience flying) and it goes horribly, horribly wrong. Maud’s body escapes and heads for the hills and Igor is left alone with his beloved employer’s brain floating helplessly in a jar….

In Pursuit of Maud will be a visually beautiful cabaret style show featuring a witty and darkly hilarious musical solo performance from Igor, played by Rowan Talbot. Igor will delight the audience with songs, jokes, slapstick and story. Played out in front of a magical filmed backdrop, created by Bafta award winner Chris Crow (The Lighthouse), audiences will follow Maud on screen as she treks across some of Wales most iconic landscapes.
