Rebellion and maturity run through Shakespeare's histories like a single twisted thread, exemplified by the tearawayturned- hero Hal and his forever adolescent associate Falstaff, who deserves and gets a comedy to himself in The Merry Wives of Windsor. Lives real and imagined, nobles and beggars, Tudor history and culture all spring to vivid life on the stage of the Globe Theatre in award-winning productions featuring many fine British actors and original music played by an 'authentic' Shakespearean pit band.

Image Il Trovatore, La Traviata & Macbeth (3 DVD)
This trio of unforgettable Royal Opera productions features some of the most cherished and admired examples of Verdi’s operatic genius. The composer returned to his early masterpiece Macbeth after the great successes Il trovatore and La traviata had propelled him into universal fame, and his 1865 revision (today the most popular version of the work) shares the marks of dramatic and musical innovation that enshrine all three operas as undying classics. Phyllida Lloyd stages Verdi’s setting of the Scottish play, featuring Simon Keenlyside’s athletic, brooding Thane opposite Liudmyla Monastryrska’s imperious Lady. Rivalry blazes between Jose Cura’s troubadour and Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s Count in an Elijah Moshinsky production with sets by noted film designer Dante Ferretti. Starring as the ill-fated courtesan Violetta in Richard Eyre’s classic production is Renee Fleming, loved by Joseph Calleja as Alfredo against the wishes of his unyielding father, played by Thomas Hampson. These are Verdi’s best-loved works brought vividly to life.

Image Twin Spirits
Twin Spirits is a unique and intimate, live theatrical performance by a chamber ensemble of actors, singers and musicians, portraying the deep and ultimately tragic love between the composer Robert Schumann and his pianist wife Clara Wieck. In this intensely moving performance of words, song and music, the Schumanns' long separation, so formative an influence on their lives, is reflected in the division of the ensemble into male and female groups. Robert's letters to Clara are read by Sting and his songs sung by Simon Keenlyside, with accompaniments and instrumental music played by Iain Burnside and Sergej Krylov. Clara's letters to Robert are read by Trudie Styler and her songs sung by Rebecca Evans, with accompaniments and instrumental music played by Natalie Clein and Natasha Paremski. The narrator, Derek Jacobi, links together the letters and lyrics to complete the essential outline of the story. Conceived and directed by John Caird, Twin Spirits was first performed in June 2005 at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London and has since been experienced only at private performances for charity by small audiences of all ages and interests, leaving them deeply touched and inspired.

Royal Danish Ballet & Det Kongelige Kapel / Graham Bond

Choreographer: August Bournonville

Staging: Nikolaj Hübbe and Sorella Englund

One of the cornerstones of the Royal Danish Ballet, 'Napoli' - created in 1842 by the Company's most celebrated choreographer and ballet master, August Bournonville - is a timeless tale of love set in the beautiful, rustic surroundings of Naples and which centres on young fisherman Gennaro's quest to rescue his beloved Teresina, supposedly drowned at sea.

For their latest production of this seminal Danish work, the Company chose to propel the action forward to the 1950s, taking inspiration from the early films of Federico Fellini in their masterly portrayal of raw, urban life. Elaborate sets and costumes by Maja Ravn and an entirely new musical score for Act II assist in the updating, while Nikolaj Hübbe and Sorella Englund's striking new choreography melds with Bournonville's classic routines, inviting 'superb' character dancing (New York Times) and providing a showcase for the Company's young dancers in virtuosic solo roles - the sensational Alban Lendorf among them.

Image Otello

The first of Verdi’s two late Shakespearian operas stands as one of the great masterpieces of grand opera. José Cura, ranked among the world’s leading interpreters of Verdi’s music, takes the title role in Willy Decker’s profound and intense production, recorded live at the Liceu, Barcelona in 2006 in true surround sound and filmed with high definition cameras.



Illustrated Synopsis & Cast Gallery


‘Verdi’s wise, passionate score was served with precision, gusto and a keen ear for drama by maestro Antoni Ros-Marbà and the solid, malleable Liceu orchestra.’

(Opera News)

‘José Cura has the vocal colouring, the power and strength, but above all the dramatic temperament that this colossal Verdi character demands.’

‘…the Bulgarian soprano Krassimira Stoyanova captivated with her sensational Desdemona. Hers is a lyrical voice of great beauty, with sufficient volume used with taste and transmitted with both sweetness and firmness.’

"What an inspired and exciting opera this is. Gorgeous characters, a busy story rich in incident and an exhilarating mix of music. Delight follows delight."
(The Stage)

Opera North's enchanting staging of The Adventures of Pinocchio, Jonathan Dove's 21st opera, is a wittily inventive feast for the eyes and ears. A full-length, through-composed grand opera with 29 characters, a sizeable chorus and a profound symphonic score, it is overflowing with visual delights, and children will love it! A sublime achievement by Martin Duncan and team, this production shines a bright new light on Collodi's dream-like original story, full of charm, darkness and magic. The superb ensemble stars Victoria Simmonds in the title role, and the orchestra and chorus respond splendidly under David Parry's vibrant baton. Mastered from the High Definition video recording and in true surround sound, this is a wonderful chance for children and adults to relive an exhilarating theatre experience at home.

Image Sophie's Choice

In 2002, Nicholas Maw's opera Sophie's Choice, based on the novel by William Styron, was given its premiere at the Royal Opera House. The subject had struck Maw when he had first watched the film several years previously, and he immediately felt it would be 'the most extraordinary basis for an opera'. Commissioned by the Royal Opera House and BBC Radio 3, Maw embarked on an adaptation of Styron's book, which took six years to complete. Conducted by Simon Rattle, a long-term enthusiast of Nicholas Maw's music, and with a wonderful cast led by Angelika Kirchschlager, Rod Gilfry, Dale Duesing and Gordon Gietz, the work won international acclaim and was later restaged in Washington, Berlin and Vienna. The Royal Opera House celebrates the work of this British composer, who died in 2009, with the release on DVD of the BBC transmission, as broadcast live in December 2002.

"Any production of this epic work is an an event, and there aren't many of them. This is an excellent version, visually a mixture of realistic and abstract, but mythic and timeless and very moving. Deborah Polaski was a fine Brunnhilde, and she continues in this role. Wotan, with a pony-tail and dark glasses, was nobly performed by Falk Struckmann. In Wotan's "farewell" the affection between father and daughter was most expressively sung and acted.".

...A fully rounded piece of work… Coherent production, perfectly staged, impeccable singers...

...The staging thrills and fills the main character with humanity… Musically much better than the London version – Véronique Gens makes a wonderful Donna Elvira, confident, strong, perfect both in her singing and acting...

(El Pais)

...The production retains its frenzied pace, the action evolving in a bare Alfons Flores set. This is a bleak westland where illicit actions go undetected, the home turf of Wojtek Drabowicz's tall, haughty Don Giovanni. This Don is less the working class anti-hero and more the yuppie hedonist with too much time and money on his hands...
