We're delighted to welcome a new season of live performances from the Royal Opera, broadcast live from Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden. 


Tuesday 31st January 2017, 7.15pm (Live)

International superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic. A story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder; the famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi’s exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.



Thursday 30th March 2017, 7.15pm (Live)

One of the most popular of all operas, Antonio Pappano conducts Puccini’s intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice. 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’ romanticised views of Japan



Wednesday 28th June 2017, 7.15pm (Live)

Olivier Award winner Keith Warner directs tenor Jonas Kaufmann, soprano Maria Agresta and baritone Ludovic Tézier in this major work of the opera repertory. Verdi’s Otello draws on the full forces of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, the Royal Opera Chorus and this stellar line-up of principal singers, with exquisite duets, emotionally potent solo numbers and thrilling choruses.
