Opera Night with Paul Herriott

In tonight's programme we celebrate the launch of Irish National Opera with the voices of leading Irish singers

Saturday May 26th - Claudio Monteverdi's The Return of Ulysses 

John Fulljames, the Royal Opera's former Associate Director of Opera, directs a new production
of The Return of Ulysses in a collaboration between The Royal Opera and the Roundhouse in
Camden, North London. One of only three surviving operas by Monteverdi, the score is full of
pathos and drama, and is considered to be an early masterpiece of Baroque opera.Roderick
Williams stars in the role of Ulysses, King of Ithaca, and Caitlin Hulcup as his wife Penelope
and the production is conducted by Baroque music specialist Christian Curnyn. (Roderick Williams as Ulysses in The Return of Ulysses, The Royal Opera © ROH 2018. Photographed by Stephen Cummiskey)


Saturday June 2nd - Puccini's Madame Butterfly 

On tonight's Opera night cultures clash when a trusting young woman marries an American naval officer stationed in Nagasaki. Puccini’s gut-wrenching music takes the audience on an emotionally charged journey through innocence, betrayal and sacrifice towards a heartbreaking finale. Yves Abel conducts the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and Chorus with Llanna Haroutounian in the leading title, Vincenzo Constanzo is Pinkerton, Zanda Svede is Suzuki, Anthony Clark Evans is Sharpless. (Anthony Clark Evans and Lianna Haroutounian in Madama Butterfly)
