We have some more “cultural” tickets available at the moment.
Try La Traviata – the touching story of the self-sacrificing courtesan of the title – has long been one of the most consistently loved of all operas across the world. Verdi’s music is instantly appealing, with a wealth of famous melodies that allow operatic voices to soar and thrill.
Or perhaps La Sonnambula which returns to The Royal Opera for the first time since 2002 in a production that brings out a layer of pyschological richness that may surprise those who only know the stunning musical highlights.
If ballet is more to your taste, we have three productions of The Nutcracker currently booking.
The Nutcracker – English National Ballet at the London Coliseum – in a world of Edwardian elegance, The Nutcracker brings to life the eternally popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers.
The Nutcracker – Royal Ballet at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden – classical ballet at its most approachable and visually entrancing, with something for everyone to enjoy, from the youngest in the family to the oldest – a Christmas present that brings a special magic each year it returns.
And finally, The Nutcracker at the O2 Arena – from 27 to 30 December 2011 Victor Hochhauser and The O2 in association with Universal Music Arts and Entertainment will present six magical performances of Sir Peter Wrights world acclaimed interpretation of the Christmas classic.
