Don Giovanni on 3 July 2015 at 7pm – The Royal Opera
An excellent cast including Christopher Maltman as Mozart's timeless anti-hero and Dorothea Röschmann, Rolando Villazón and Albina Shagimuratova star in this mesmerizing production from The Royal Opera's Director of Opera, Kasper Holten, with spectacular designs from Es Devlin.
Romeo and Juliet on 22 September 2015 at 7.30pm – The Royal Ballet
Kenneth MacMillan's ballet of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers is a classic of 20th-century ballet, and a heartbreaking match for Prokofiev's score. Created for The Royal Ballet in 1965, it's a key work in the Company's repertory and a must-see for ballet fans and newcomers alike.
