La RondinePuccini's passionate story of Magda, who falls in love with handsome newcomer Ruggero, is set in 1920s Paris in Nicolas Jol's production of Puccini's tender opera at the Royal Opera House. There's a quiet sadness to the opera's exquisite melodies as our heroine knows she can never be with her younger, naive lover because she is indebted to her elderly romancer Rambaldo.

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).
