Win 2 tickets to Opera North: Der Rosenkavalier @ Theatre Royal, Newcastle

Win

Closing Date: 20 October 2016

Gorgeous music, sumptuous period costume and comic intrigue characterise this opera.

The Marschallin, a 30-something aristocrat, is having an affair with the much younger Count Octavian. Although fearful he will leave her for a younger woman, she engineers the first meeting between her lover and the beautiful young Sophie, who is being forced into marriage with the unloveable Baron Ochs – with inevitable consequences. Perfectly poised between comedy and pathos, Der Rosenkavalier supplies an evening of gorgeous music, sumptuous costumes, and romantic intrigue, by turns comic and moving.

Sung in German with English titles.

Der Rosenkavalier is showing on Wednesday 2 and Saturday 5 November from 6.30pm – 10.30pm with two intervals.

Tickets can be booked online from the Theatre Royal website.
