An opera filled with love, vengeance and murder will burst onto Weston-super-Mare Odeon’s screens this month, when the show is screened live from London.

Il Trovatore is the latest performance at the Royal Opera House to be shown in cinemas.

Il Trovatore was written by Giuseppe Verdi, and it is regarded as one of the greatest operas of the romantic period.

Its story sees soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveal a terrible secret and two men become embroiled in a deadly fight for one woman’s love.

Director David Bösch makes his UK debut with this production, which will be shown at the Odeon on January 31 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 watch the show.
