Director Jo Davies and WNO Music Director Tomáš Hanus present an insight into WNO’s new production of Bizet’s Carmen
No man can resist the charms of opera’s ultimate seductress Carmen.
Verdi wrote that Rigoletto was his best opera, and with its dramatic storyline and score, it’s easy to see why it continues to be such an enduring favourite.

Inspired by a newspaper comic strip, WNO’s colourful production is charming, funny and profound in equal measure.
Director David Pountney and WNO Conductor Laureate Carlo Rizzi present an insight into the final part of WNO’s Verdi Trilogy, Les vêpres siciliennes
Based around true events which occurred in Sicily in 1282, Verdi’s grand opera features wonderful choruses and breath-taking arias, including the Bolero.
Through a series of twists and turns, The Marriage of Figaro will keep you guessing until the final scene, with Mozart’s sublime score brilliantly bringing the action to life.
WNO present a contrasting double bill: the enchanting fairy tale, The Nightingale and the dark and menacing story of Bluebeard’s Castle
WNO’s much-loved production partners wonderfully with Rossini’s witty and expressive melodies.
This charming fairy-tale opera will be brought to life by eight singers, 11 puppeteers and a cast of fabulous life-sized puppets.
