The Bartered Bride

A simple tale of young love triumphing over cynical calculation, this irresistible comedy abounds with fresh folk-like melodies, joyous Bohemian dances and a mesmerising circus scene.

La traviata

Profoundly moving music, fervent passion and sweeping drama, Verdi’s La traviata simply has it all.

The Coronation of Poppea

One of opera’s earliest masterpieces, Poppea charts the consuming obsession of Nero for the beautiful Poppea and his ruthless efforts to sway aside any obstacle that stands in the way of their union.
