The Royal Opera, Puccini's La rondine on Thursday 11 July at 7.30pm (gates open at 6.30pm, pre-show at 7pm).
Glamourous 1920s Paris provides the backdrop for some of Puccini's most exquisite music in this romantic and elegant production, starring Angela Gheorghiu as the beautiful courtesan Magda and Charles Castronovo as her eager young suitor Ruggero.
