The Royal Opera Screening - La rondine

11 July 2013 7:30pm - 10:30pm

Live, free outdoor relay of Puccini’s La rondine

 

This summer BP Big Screens returns to Millennium Square with three of the Royal Opera House's most emotionally powerful productions, the second of which is:

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. 

Location: Millennium Square is the city's award winning outdoor public space and multi-purpose entertainment venue situated in the heart of the city centre (see map below). Surrounded by the Town Hall, Civic Hall, Leeds General Infirmary, Electric Press and City Museum, this stylish civic setting is the ideal venue to experience the magic of opera and ballet relayed live outdoors. Attendees are welcome to seat themselves within the controlled and accessible area created on Millennium Square. Covered seating (with limited capacity), toilets and coffee cart available on site, but you are welcome to bring your own collapsible furniture and picnic.

Final screening: The Royal Opera, Puccini's Tosca on Thursday 18 July at 7.30pm (gates open at 6.30pm, pre-show at 7pm
