Even Cheaper Salome 11 June

June 7, 2012

Covent Garden write as follows:

We have a very special last minute offer for you for David McVicar’s ground-breaking production of Salome.

The last few remaining seats in the Orchestra Stalls are now only £50. (Usually priced at £120, £111 and £106).

Religion, sexuality and perversion are a potent combination in this passionate drama, set to complex, fascinating and richly-textured music by Richard Strauss. The Metro praised McVicar’s production as ‘the real thing’ and described the music as ‘gorgeous’.

Salome truly is live theatre with The Royal Opera at its most intense and gripping, with McVicar’s handling of the tormented heroine both realistic and profoundly sympathetic.

Please note that this production contains violence and scenes of a sexual nature, which reflect the adult content of the opera.

Jonathan Miller’s production of Puccini’s powerfully popular opera returns in a first revival. The 2009 opening night made broadcasting history when Sky Arts simultaneously screened live both the onstage action and the backstage excitement.

Atmospherically updated to 1930s Paris, this uber-romantic story of young love blighted by sudden tragedy unfolds on cinematically realistic sets inspired by the iconic photographs of Cartier-Bresson and Brassaï.

Rising star Elizabeth Llewellyn – winner of the inaugural Voice of Black Opera competition – debuts as Mimì, while the role of Rodolfo is shared between Gwyn Hughes Jones (an acclaimed Pinkerton in Anthony Minghella’s Madam Butterfly and Calaf in Rupert Goold’s Turandot) .

ENO's Idomeneo image

The normal kind of discounts for ENO’s Idomeneo have now appeared on TravelZoo:  £22 for the Dress Circle seems reasonable enough to me.
