About this event

A huge undertaking on a par with Wagner's Ring, The Trojans has everything, says the newly knighted Antonio Pappano: 'a war story, a love story, a guy on a mission … it's a brilliant story! It is something I really feel personally about: its electricity, its grandeur and the incredible variety of musical forms are mind-boggling!'

There will be two intervals of 30 minutes each

 

Please note change of artist: For health reasons, Jonas Kaufmann is unable to appear.
