An air of romantic melancholy pervades the story of village bride-to-be Amina who sleepwalks into the bedroom of another man. Rejected by her fiancé Elvino, she unwittingly reveals her innocence in the spellbinding final scene. It is true that anyone earnestly looking for down-to-earth plausibility or serious dramatic weight might be disappointed, but Bellini's beautiful, long-spun melodies and treasonable vocal writing even inspired admiration from Wagner, who considered the music passionate and 'intimately bound up with the words'. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Running time 3 hours 6 minutes. New Production in co-operation with Vienna State Opera.

Performers Elena Kelessidi (Amina), Juan Diego Florez (Elvino), Inger Dam Jensen (Lisa), Yvonne Howard (Teresa), Alastair Miles (Count Rodolfo), Graeme Broadbent (Alessio).
