Roll up for a double dose of desperation and drama in this classic double bill of tragedies with stories that cut all too close to home. In a small Italian town, lusting after someone who is not yours is a dangerous game.

And falling in love is even more treacherous. Two short operas explore the full spectrum of emotion: passionate love, consuming lust, bitter suffering and boundless rage.

This co-production with the Royal Opera House, lays bare the raw heart of each opera — ordinary people, driven by emotion to the limits of what we know is human. The result is pure catharsis: everyday tragedy writ large on stage.
