ROYAL OPERA

Synopsis

Damiano Michieletto’s production was an Olivier-Award-winning hit when first presented in 2015. He sets both operas within the same village, allowing characters from one piece to reappear in the other and offering theatrical realism within visuals that are modern and yet timeless. The production was widely praised at ist premiere, and summarized by the Financial Times as ‘a gripping evening all round’. “Damiano Michieletto has surely won new fans with this intelligent updating… The Royal Opera orchestra was on magnetic form for both operas.” (The Guardian)
