Production details

Before Turandot and Tosca, there was Le villi. Puccini's first opera is a sumptuous supernatural melodrama: a story of seasons, spirits and a love stronger than death - and as you'd expect from Puccini, it's bursting with glorious melodies. The fabulous Ermonela Jaho heads the cast in this rare concert performance. Given in association with Opera Rara, it's the first hearing in 120 years for Puccini's original 1884 version. Under the direction of Opera Rara's Artistic Director, Sir Mark Elder, one of our finest living opera conductors, it should be a revelation. Emotionally charged music by Bizet and Verdi launches an evening of opera at its most intoxicating. Experience it live. Royal Festival Hall
