A powerful tale where paganism and sensuality battle religion and restraint. 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 masterpiece.

This co-production with Royal Opera House was first performed in Covent Garden and 'rapturously acclaimed' by critics who described Kasper Holten’s arresting staging as a 'major artistic triumph'.
