Amongst the most popular of Verdi's operas, La traviata is the work of a master of the musical drama.

Original book called La Dame aux Camelias.

Light shines from heaven, plagues rain down on oppressors, the Red Sea parts ? all iconic moments from the Old Testament story of the Israelites exodus from Egypt. You might think that these famous scenes are impossible to bring to life on stage convincingly. But once again Rossini's genius as a dramatic composer makes miracles happen through a score of vast scale and power. Breathtaking music and visual spectacle combine to create an exhilarating evening at the theatre.

Kafka's terrifying tale of a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed to neither him nor the reader has lost none of its power down the years. The great American minimalist is now bringing his signature music and dramatic force to this literary classic. Working with Christopher Hampton as librettist, this new opera will wring every nuance of tension and paranoia from the story, as Josef K tries to confront the system.
The Trial brings together two extraordinary minds - Philip Glass and Franz Kafka. Both masters of their craft, each with his own instantly recognisable style - somehow they are a perfect match. Ever since he read the Kafka as a teenager, Glass has cherished the idea of turning it into an opera. We hope you will share our anticipation and excitement as we wait to see how The Trial will be re-imagined.
We all know the story about the apple, that the overture was the theme tune for the Lone Ranger and that Rossini was a comic genius. But there is much more to William Tell than any of this would suggest. William Tell is a spectacular, uplifting epic and an urgent hymn to national freedom in the face of oppression. Tell is the final work of a consummate dramatist and possibly the greatest achievement of his career.
