Tickets are now on sale for the Royal Opera House Autumn season 2012.
Royal Opera productions for the season include Laurent Pelly's new production of Robert le diable as well as a revival of L'elisir d'amore. Harrison Birtwistle's The Minotaur returns in the new year too, giving audiences another chance to see John Tomlinson in the title role. Autumn will see the company staging The Ring Cycle and although the production is sold out in advance, a limited number of day tickets will be available from the Box Office.
In Kevin O'Hare's first season as Director of The Royal Ballet, the company will perform a mix of established favourites and new works. Among the former, Swan Lake returns to Covent Garden as does Christmas treat The Nutcracker. Newer work includes a mixed bill of Viscera/Infra/Fool's Paradise. MacMillan fans are well catered for with a programme featuring Concerto, Las Hermanas and Requiem.
ROH2 welcome a number of visiting companies as well as commissioned works. English Touring Opera, Glyndebourne and Wayne McGregor's Random Dance are represented through Christ lag/Emperor Atlantis, The Yellow Sofa and FAR respectively. New works commissioned include In The Locked Room/Ghost Patrol and Kafka Fragments. Later in the season, Will Tuckett's acclaimed The Wind in the Willows returns to the Linbury Studio Theatre, offering an alternative Christmas production for all the family.
