Opera Holland Park, Stable Yard, Holland Park, London, W8 6LU

This thrilling double bill of Delius and Puccini contrasts two surprise reunions between old flames. One leads to a crime of passion, the other to supernatural revenge. Delius explores a seedy corner of Paris and verismo extremes in Margot la Rouge, while the Gothic romance of Le Villi is given soaring expression by Puccini.
