Opera on Screen: Featuring the world's most celebrated operas.

These two short Italian operas are each regarded as their composers’ masterpiece and are brought together in a new staging by award-winning director Damiano Michieletto, who sets both operas in a poverty stricken Mafia-controlled village in 1980s southern Italy. The Royal Opera’s Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts a cast that includes charismatic Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek, exciting Italian soprano Carmen Giannattasio and the thrilling Latvian tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko.

In Italian with English subtitles. Includes one 10-minute intermission.

Tickets: $16 (Members: $12, $10, Free)
