If you think of a night at the opera, extravagant costumes and gilded splendour might come to mind. Yet the works that the musical greats have written for opera houses worldwide maintain an enduring modernity, their stories, issues and dilemmas as relevant today as ever. Who hasn’t ever dreamt of unlimited knowledge, felt unrequited love or placed trust in others?

With exceptional talents from Covent Garden, this is opera stripped back, the performers deliberately dressing down so nothing cloaks their raw talent.
