This acclaimed production from Opera North in Leeds, England, is under the direction of Tim Albery with French soprano Anne Sophie Duprels returning to the title role.

Experience the Great Escape of opera next season, with three blockbusters planned: The  Barber of Seville, The Magic Flute  and Lucia di Lammermoor.  Each opera demands its principal characters perform a variety of cunning and clever exits, whether it's from a lecherous old man, from magical beings or from a constrained, loveless marriage.
