Premiered just two months before his death, this fantastical masterpiece is among Mozart’s finest achievements. The Queen of the Night enlists Prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro with the help of the endearingly tactless bird-catcher Papageno but when they arrive, his priorities shift and he endures a series of trials to join Sarastro’s community. A supremely entertaining comedy featuring lively duets and arias, Mozart’s score runs the gamut from grandiose to poignant to playfully silly. David McVicar’s production brings this vibrant and inventive opera to life with stunning sets by John Macfarlane.

Includes one 15 minute intermission.

Set in 19th Century Paris, Puccini’s tremendously moving La bohème tells the story of a star-crossed romance between an impoverished poet named Rodolfo, and his delicate neighbour Mimi who falls ill. Rodolfo lives a Bohemian existence with his fellow artist friends, holed up in a dingy apartment when fate brings Mimi into his life one night when her candle goes out and she knocks on his door looking for matches. It’s love at first sight but Rodolfo’s jealousy and Mimi’s worsening condition lead to a devastating conclusion. Features two of Puccini’s most celebrated arias, “Sì, mi chiamano Mimì” and “Che gelida manina.”

Includes one 15 minute intermission.

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole and her strange, delightfully confusing encounters in Wonderland with the instantly recognizable characters the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts in this exuberant and entertaining adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic from director Christopher Wheeldon. Marvelously staged, this modern production premiered in 2011 and explodes with imagination and feeling. With bursts of colour, elaborate dance choreography, and an appropriately dazzling visual design that keeps up with Carroll’s mad genius, this is a ballet for all ages that taps into wonderment and the nightmarish in equal measure.

Including two 15 min intermissions.
