Jules Massenet

A drama of impossible love with an exacerbated romanticism, Massenet's opera captivates with its title role, here played by the amazing Sir Simon Keenlyside.

Charles Lecocq

Lecocq’s Madame Angot was a triumph when it was created, then it was forgotten. A talented team of French singers is putting her back in the spotlight with great enthusiasm.

Jacques Offenbach

Ending the season on a high note, with an opera-buffa and Offenbach's gem: a great way to ease into the summer break.
