Squares, piazzas and parks around the country will once more showcase world class opera and dance for free this summer with the return of BP Summer Big Screens, celebrating their 25th year.

La bohème (17 May), Falstaff (30 May), and Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 (16 July) will be screened for free in live broadcasts from The Royal Opera House at 27 venues, from Aberdeen to Plymouth. Last year, thousands enjoyed a trio of productions, spending the evening soaking up the atmosphere and indulging in some tasty-looking picnic spreads.

As well as the action on stage, the relays will also offer exclusive glimpses behind the scenes at the Royal Opera House with a number of  interval films.

The locations of this year's BP Big Screens:

Ahead of the first screening - John Copley's production of La bohème, familiarise yourself with Puccini's masterpiece through our collection of production photos, as well as hearing Director of Opera Kasper Holten on why the piece is such a classic.

We'll be covering the action from London's Trafalgar Square via Twitter during all broadcasts so if you're going, tweet us your thoughts and pictures on the day. Time to dig out the picnic basket...
