For the 2015/16 Summer Season, The Royal Ballet presents a triple bill showcase that features work by three diverse choreographers, all closely associated with the Company. The programme comprises a new one-act ballet by Royal Ballet Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregorKenneth MacMillan’s dark drama The Invitation and Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour.

The Summer Season for The Royal Opera includes David Bösch's new production of Verdi’s middle-period masterpiece Il trovatore, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, music director of Teatro Regio Torino; while Welsh National Opera celebrate their 70th anniversary with performances of Iain Bell’s In Parenthesis, a new opera based on the epic poem by Welsh World War I poet David Jones.

The Season sees two revivals: Daniele Abbado’s production of Verdi’s Nabucco, in which Plácido Domingo and Dimitri Platanias share the honours in the title role; and Benoît Jacquot’s production of Massenet’s Werther, which sees Antonio Pappano conduct a stellar cast including Vittorio Grigolo and Joyce DiDonato.

  1. A typo - I think the bookings dates should read "Booking for Summer Season 2015/16 opens to Friends of Covent Garden on 1 March 2016 for dance productions ...".
