About the event

Watching his wife dance under the stranger's spell, King Roger struggles with his own passions: choosing between the sacred love he knows and the sensuous, glittering realm of hedonism the shepherd preaches.

Szymanowski's intoxicating, iridescent music is rarely heard on the opera stage, so don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear a 20th-century Polish masterpiece.

This co-production with the Royal Opera House was first performed in Covent Garden and was "rapturously acclaimed" by critics who described Kasper Holten's arresting staging as a "major artistic triumph" (The Telegraph, UK). Andrea Molino conducts a cast led by Arthur Espiritu, Lorina Gore and Michael Honeyman.
