The Royal Opera presents Verdi’s grand opera Les Vêpres Siciliennes for the very first time – and in a major new production. Antonio Pappano conducts a star cast that includes Bryan Hymel, Marina Polavskaya, Erwin Schrott and Michael Volle.

Paris in 1855, when the opera was first performed, provides the starting point for the interpretation by celebrated Norwegian-born director Stefan Herheim, who is making his Covent Garden debut. The opera ballet plays a significant role too, with Johann Kobborg choreographing for dancers from the Royal Ballet and Royal Danish Ballet.

The story is set to impassioned and dramatic music, rich in showpiece arias and ensembles and with striking choruses. Through this monumental operatic work, Herheim takes us over the threshold from the reality of the opera house into the dreamlike stories of the operas they present.

The show time given is the curtain-up time; doors open 15 minutes earlier.
