Official Event Listing
  • Brilliant! Gatti is a supreme Wagnerian, gloriously aware of all the kinesthetic requirements. Schager is convincing, Nicolls among the great Isoldes I've heard. If your ambition is to increase your understanding of Tristan, beg, borrow or steal a ticket.
    Jack Buckley, SEEN AND HEARD

New Production! Italian maestro Daniele Gatti, one of few who can truly claim to follow in the great Italian tradition of Toscanini, mounts the Teatro dell’Opera podium for the first time for this season inaugurating performance of Wagner’s transcendent opera about eternal love, a sublime work that has influenced generations of artists.

Directed by Pierre Audi, tenor Andreas Schager and soprano Rachel Nicholls will star as the illicit lovers. 

Screening at all locations, excl. Riverside. 

Opera Roma

Taking its current name at the advent of the republic, Rome’s beautiful opera house, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma was first inaugurated in 1880, as Teatro Costanzi. This iconic venue hosted the world premiere of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Puccini’s Tosca among others.
