The Royal Opera presents Verdi’s grand opera LES VEPRES SICILIENNES for the very first time. Antonio Pappano conducts a star cast that includes Bryan Hymel, Marina Poplavskaya, Erwin Schrott and Michael Volle. The opera ballet plays a significant role too, with dancers from The Royal Ballet and Royal Danish Ballet also performing. The Paris, 1855–set opera features impassioned and dramatic music, rich in showpiece arias and ensembles and with striking choruses. This monumental operatic work takes over the threshold from the reality of the opera house into the dreamlike stories of the operas they present.
TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY! Tickets are $20, available in advance at the box office and online.
