As it is now clear that ROH performances will have to be suspended well beyond 19th April, we are sad to inform you that the remainder of the current 2019/20 cinema season is now cancelled and with it all our upcoming ROH cinema screenings including Cavalleria Rusticana &Pagliacci, Dante and Elektra.
We continue to closely follow all governmental guidance regarding COVID-19 and will update you on our plans as soon as we have any new information. We are in conversation with the Distributors to see if we are able to make a few pre-recorded ROH productions (Fidelio, Swan Lake and Cavalleria Rusticana &Pagliacci) available once we are able to re-open.
If you have already purchased tickets, a member of the Box Office team will be in contact shortly to arrange a refund.
Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere.
Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde in last Season’s Der Ring des Nibelungen) in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytämnestra.
For more information about this performance, please visit the Royal Opera House Live website.
