Vittorio Grigolo, Leonardo Capalbo -
photoThe Royal Opera's lavish production of Les Contes d'Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann), Offenbach's masterpiece, is a favourite with audiences.

At the centre of these extraordinary tales of clockwork dolls, magical glasses, ghostly voices and sensual courtesans is the vivid imagination of the drunken Romantic poet Hoffmann. Charismatic young tenor Vittorio Grigolo is Hoffmann - compelled to tell the story of his lovers who, he believes, have all been stolen by a succession of arch villains. Superb baritone Thomas Hampson performs all four villains.

The Royal Opera House: Madama Butterfly (NR) 5/7/2017
Antonio Pappano, Ermonela Jaho - 2 hr. 45 mins.
photoPuccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production.

The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.
