About the Show/Event
Find the best Lessons in Love and Violence opera or operetta tickets at Royal Opera House, West End. The story centres around a king, compelled to choose between love and political hard-headedness. His decisions allow his country to slide into civil war, and set his own wife and son against him. When his son in turn is given bruising lessons in realpolitik, he performs - albeit with the object of restoring peace - a terrifying act of violence in front of his mother. World Premiere
