Carmen  |  February 23 2018 - 19:00

Venue : Royal Opera House, London

Barrie Kosky directs Bizet’s much-loved opera, with Jakub Hrůša and Christopher Willis conducting two casts led by Anna Goryachova and Gaëlle Arquez in the title role. The young soldier Don José intends to marry Micaëla, a girl from his home village. But when he meets the sensual and fiercely independent Carmen, he sacrifices everything to be with her.

Daphnis et Chloé  |  February 27 2018 - 19:30

Venue : Opéra Bastille, Paris

This Ravel evening brings together two ballets on the themes of love and seduction. Whilst one of them – virtuoso and colorful – displays fluid classical lines, the other – all in red and black – is stark but seething with eroticism. In Daphnis and Chloé (2013), Benjamin Millepied recounts how love between a shepherd and a shepherdess triumphs over temptations and threats. In Maurice Béjart’s Boléro (1961), a soloist captivates his audience from the top of a table.

Monteverdi  |  February 28 2018 - 20:00

Venue : deSingel, Antwerp

In the foreword of his Eighth Madrigal Book, Monteverdi describes the many years he struggled to properly express his feelings in his music. The book sums up more than twenty years of experimentation. The collection has been carefully built up into two mirrored parts dedicated to love and war and reflects the possibilities Monteverdi discovered. The Ricercar Consort takes us on a journey of exploration into this unique universe.

Giselle  |  March 1 2018 - 19:30

Venue : Royal Opera House, London

The peasant girl Giselle discovers the true identity of her lover Albrecht – and that he is promised to another. Giselle kills herself. Her soul enters the ranks of the Wilis – shades of young women who died before their wedding day. All men that come across their path are compelled to dance themselves to death, and Albrecht falls into their trap. Giselle’s intercession saves Albrecht and releases her soul from the Wilis’ power.

Les Siècles & François-Xavier Roth  |  March 1 2018 - 20:00

Venue : deSingel, Antwerp

For years, the viola has unfairly had the reputation of being the ‘misfit’ of the string family. However, the arrival of soloists such as Tabea Zimmerman has brought an end to this misplaced banter. Zimmerman brings this elegant instrument fully to life with an exceptionally rich and warm sound and a superhuman playing technique. In Berlioz’s ‘Harold in Italy’, the viola provides an adventurous translation of the romantic exploits and tavern visits of the roguish explorer Harold.

Tosca  |  March 3 2018 - 12:00

Venue : Royal Opera House, London

Three casts, led by Adrianne Pieczonka, Angela Gheorghiu and Martina Serafin and conducted by Dan Ettinger and Plácido Domingo, star in The Royal Opera’s production of Puccini’s thriller. The painter Mario Cavaradossi helps a fugitive escape – and so attracts the attention of Scarpia, the sadistic Chief of Police. Scarpia captures Cavaradossi and has him tortured within earshot of his lover, the singer Tosca.

Don Quichotte  |  March 4 2018 - 14:00

Venue : National Opera & Ballet, Amsterdam

Prominent foreign companies like the Bolshoi Ballet and American Ballet Theatre have triumphed for many years with Don Quichotte. The version by leading Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky in 2010 was the first full-length Don Quichotte ballet to be staged in the Netherlands. Since then, the production has received acclaim as far afield as China, and the dancers of the leading roles have been nominated for many major dance awards.
