Director Michael Mayer's hit production of Verdi's powerful tragedy sees 1500s Mantua replaced by a seedy and gaudy Las Vegas in 1960; the ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. As with many operas, the themes of revenge, mistaken identities and divine intervention feature heavily in this; something that was quite hidden in Victor Hugo's original novel until Verdi put it to music.

Isabel Lenard stars as Charlotte, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as Wether, conducted by Edward Gardner. More info

The ever enduring Don Giovanni returns to the Metropolitan Opera.
