Thanks to its agreement with Versión Digital (exclusive distributor for Spain of the Royal Opera House’s cinema screenings from its London stage) and Cinesa Cinemas, the British Council is organising a draw of free double tickets to see one of the Royal Opera House’s most acclaimed opera productions this season in cinemas all over Spain on Thursday 10th March 2022.
This new production of Verdi’s Rigoletto is directed by Oliver Mears – his first as Director of The Royal Opera. This production sees Verdi’s masterpiece as a modern morality play that pits power against innocence, beauty against ugliness, in a pitiless world of luxurious decadence, corruption and social decay. Listen out for the return of the opera's most famous aria, 'La donna è mobile', in the final act as we find out who gets the last laugh.
The invitations will be available for cinemas in Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid, Marbella and Santander. The deadline to participate in the draw is 1st March at 11:59 p.m. CET. We'll be in touch with the lucky winners by 3rd March.
