    Experience the decadence and elegance of 1870's Paris in David McVicar's spectacular production of Gounod's best-loved opera.

    The Royal Opera - Faust

     

    There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling.

    Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870's Paris.

    Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

    Three ballets - one world premiere: Within the Golden Hour, new Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Flight Pattern

    Artists of the Royal Ballet in Flight Pattern

     

    The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers.

    Christopher Wheeldon’s 'Within the Golden Hour' is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset.

    Crystal Pite’s 'Flight Pattern', revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.

    Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet, has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

    Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth Macmillan's 20th-century ballet masterpiece.

    Romeo and Juliet

     

    Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s 'Romeo and Juliet' has become a modern ballet classic.

    The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.

    Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.
