Royal Opera House
La traviata ROH

From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

The Royal Ballet
Don Quixote

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri. Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

The Little Stranger12a

Precisely directed, this is a hypnotic, haunting adaptation of Sarah Waters best-selling Gothic novel. The son of a housemaid, Dr. Faraday has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to Hundreds Hall, long-time home to the Ayres family, where his mother once worked. It is now in decline and its inhabitants are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family's story is about to become entwined with his own. Spellbinding, sad and spooky this creates an atmosphere of low-level dread more than suspenseful or scary.

In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor and Zula fall deeply, obsessively and destructively in love.

Tiny cogs in the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the West. One day in Berlin as they spot their chance, they make a split decision that will mark their lives forever. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, this offers a stunning marriage of haunting imagery and heartfelt emotion while retaining a quiet humour throughout.

The Wife15

Poignant and powerful, Close’s wonderfully subtle performance might just earn her the Oscar that has so far eluded her. After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Joe is vain. Joan is self-effacing. Joe enjoys his very public role as a Great American Novelist, the devoted Joan pours her considerable intellect, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Joan is about to drop a bombshell. This cleverly interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion with a portrait of a marriage, and a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, and love. It’s a pleasure simply to watch Close and Pryce at their considerable best.
