Manon Lescaut

In Puccini’s hands, the story of Manon, an eighteenth-century femme fatale hopelessly in love with the student Des Grieux, but also with a life of luxury, becomes a compelling, fast-paced drama.

Manon Lescaut

Scribe transformed Manon into a frivolous young woman, who sincerely falls in love with Des Grieux but has the misfortune to always find herself in the wrong place at the wrong time

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Le nozze di Figaro

With Le Nozze di Figaro, Mozart’s music perfectly captures all the nuances of how it feels to be in love, proving him to be just as much a fine connoisseur of the human mind as a true genius of musical theatre.

Lo Schiaccianoci

by Gaetano Donizetti

L'elisir d'amore

While the elixir of love sold by the charlatan Dulcamara is an authentic fraud, Donizetti’s opera L’Elisir d’Amore is instead truly miraculous, comically funny and heart-wrenching at the same time, with the romantic tale of Nemorino and Adina told through delightful arias, duets and choruses.
Opera & Ballet | February 28-March 11, 2025
by Giuseppe Verdi


Rigoletto is a tragic and grotesque story that powerfully captures the fine line between good and evil. A masterpiece by Verdi, it is an opera without a hero, studded with memorable classics, from “La Donna è Mobile” to the love duet “È il Sol dell’Anima.”

La dama di picche

Only one opera moved Tchaikovsky to tears while he was composing it: The Queen of Spades. The tragedy of Hermann, a man whose obsession with gambling leads him to lose all hope for happiness and love, inspired the composer to write his most moving and harrowing arias.
Opera & Ballet | May 15-27, 2025
by Ambroise Thomas


Ghosts, love, madness, and revenge are the mainstays of this “opéra romantique” version of Hamlet by Ambroise Thomas. While it adds new episodes to the Shakespearean tragedy, making room for colourful dances and choruses, at the same time it preserves the original’s darker and more violent scenes, taken to new heights by extraordinary music.
Opera & Ballet | June 18-29, 2025
by Umberto Giordano

Andrea Chénier

Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and the Jacobin’s reign of terror, Andrea Chénier is the tragedy of a poet willing to sacrifice his life for his ideals, and the woman who chooses to share his fate on the gallows for love. Umberto Giordano’s score skilfully weaves together the local colour of the moment with arias and duets of memorable passion.
