WIN: Tickets to Giordano's thrilling opera
PUBLISHED: 12:00 22 January 2015
THE Royal Opera house is putting on a performance of a historical drama - and you can watch it on the big screen.
Umberto Giordano’s Andrea Chénier is a fictionalised account of the last years of the poet who was guillotined during the reign of terror of the French Revolution.
Jonas Kaufmann takes the starring role of Chénier alongside Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek, who plays Chénier’s beloved Maddalena.
It is the first time Giordano’s thrilling drama has been to the Royal Opera House since 1985.
It is directed by David McVicar, who has a string of successful Royal Opera House shows under his belt.
The new production also stars Željko Lucic as Carlo Gérard, a servant-turned-revolutionary who is Chénier’s rival for the love of Maddalena.
The show will be screened at Weston’s Odeon on January 29 at 7.15pm.
The Mercury has teamed up with The Odeon to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.
