GlorianaIn Benjamin Britten's centenary year, Richard Jones directs a deliciously wistful production of the composer's Gloriana. Commissioned by the Royal Opera House to mark the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953, Gloriana is an opera for our time, exploring tensions between affairs of state and affairs of the heart. The action takes place in Tudor England as Queen Elizabeth I is approaching the end of her reign and has to balance her amorous feelings towards the Earl of Essex with his own mounting ambitions. Buy tickets now for Gloriana at the Royal Opera House.

*This show is sung in English with surtitles and on 22 and 24 June there will be cameras filming in the auditorium.

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).
