    Royal Ballet: Sleeping Beauty


    Recorded as live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
    Lauren Cuthbertson and Federico Bonelli take the principal roles in one of the Royal Ballet’s most beautiful productions.
    Designed by Oliver Messel, with the masterful 19th-century choreography of Marius Petipa combined with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. Throughout, Tchaikovsky’s masterful score takes ballet music to a height of passion, sophistication and intensity that arguably has never been surpassed.
    The performance lasts about 3 hours including 2 intervals.

    Royal Opera: La Boheme


    Recorded as live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
    Puccini’s music and Richard Jones’s production capture the joy and heartache of young love in Paris.
    Richard Jones perfectly captures the blend of tragedy and comedy in La bohème, and provides an acute analysis of Puccini’s young would-be artists and their lovers, the soulful Mimì and spirited Musetta. Spectacular designs by Stewart Laing evoke both the poverty of the bohemians’ attic home and the splendour of Paris’s shopping arcades on Christmas Eve.

    Royal Ballet: Swan Lake


    Recorded as live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
    Liam Scarlett’s glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival. While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet. Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside.
    The performance lasts about 3 hours, including 2 intervals.
