Opera and Ballet to watch online

A couple more online events for you to watch, this time an Opera and a Ballet as part of the #OurHouseToYourHouse series.


Join The Royal Opera House for Puccini’s Il trittico: Il tabarro, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi.
The Story:
Il tabarro is a tale of jealousy and murder between Michele, his young wife Giorgetta and her lover Luigi, set aboard a barge on the Seine.
Suor Angelica tells the story of the nun Angelica’s familial loss, sacrifice and suicide.
Gianni Schicchi is an opera full of trickery, greed and romance as a family dispute breaks out over a missing will.
Available till 19th June

Or try The Royal Ballet for Frederick Ashton’s La Fille mal gardée (The Wayward Daughter). One of the choreographer’s most joyous and colourful creations and inspired by his love for the Suffolk countryside, the ballet is set on a farm and tells a story of love between Lise, the daughter of Widow Simone, and Colas, a young farmer. It contains some of Ashton’s most stunning choreography, most strikingly in the series of energetic pas de deux that express the youthful passion of the young lovers, performed here by Marianela Nuñez and Carlos Acosta. The ballet is laced with exuberant good humour, and elements of national folk dance, from dancing chickens and a maypole dance to a Lancashire clog dance.

Available till 26th June
