CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
Mozart's last opera, but his first to be produced in England. Supposedly written in just 18 days this work looks at the tension between passion and duty, ego and mercy. Tito, the Roman Emperor, needs an Empress but who? Vitellia has been rejected and is out for revenge - seeking to have the Emperor assassinated by her admirer Sesto. But the plot fails and both Vitellia and Sesto are at the mercy of Tito. Production new to the Royal Opera House. This is a co-production between The Dallas Opera and Minnesota Opera. The production will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
