THE TALES OF HOFFMAN
30/07/2016 to 07/08/2016
An opéra fantastique from the master of opéra bouffe in Paris, Jacques Offenbach. The tales are rendered vividly by a dissolute poet possessed by images of the occult and fantasy, a work of horrific dramatic power and musical mastery. In the grip of evil, only Hoffmann’s muse is able to guide him to redemption.
30/07/2016 to 05/08/2016
One of the most performed baroque operas of all times. The encounter between the Roman Emperor Julius and Queen Cleopatra in Egypt is as mythic as it is romantic. Handel brings to the fore a complex world of political intrigue, cultural clashes and historic drama with musical force and clarity. The opera introduces ravishing melodies of incomparable beauty.
THE MONKEY KING
