Robert le diable

Laurent Pelly brings the classic French Opera, Meyerbeer to the Royal Opera House for the first time since 1890. The plot follows Richard, the Duke of Normandy as he travels to Sicily in a bid to marry the lovely Princess Isabelle. But he is lead astray by his deceptive and sinister companion, Bertram. Medieval France is recreated in Robert le diable, with knights, jousting and courtly dances providing the scene for this romantic and supernatural tale.

 

About Royal Opera House

This impressive building in the heart of Covent Garden has been playing host to major stars of the classical music world since 1858. The third theatre to be located on this site, today's Royal Opera House is the result of a reconstruction in the 1990s (although the main auditorium is part of the original building).
