L'Elisir D'Amore is Donizetti's romantic comedy of rural life which comes up trumps in director Laurent Pelly's staging, matching the piece's perfect blend of sentiment and tomfoolery. Italian conductor Daniele Rustioni conducts this star-studded cast revival. Lucy Crowe takes the soprano lead as Adina, the most sophisticated woman in the village, loved from afar by Vittorio Grigolo's dashing but shy Nemorino, with Bryn Terfel as the larger-than-life travelling quack, Doctor Dulcamara. L'Elisir D'Amore, to be recorded live from the Royal Opera House stage in late 2014, is one of the most frequently performed of all Donizetti's operas, combining a touching love story and hilarious comedy with beautiful music, including the much-loved aria "Una furtiva lagrima." The opera's premiere in Milan in 1832 was a triumph and secured Donizetti's place as one of the leading Italian opera composers of his day. The Royal Opera's charming production is set in the sun-drenched countryside of 1950s Italy, complete with haystacks, Vespas and even a stray dog. It is injected with lively, visual humour, from Nemorino's tipsy clowning to Dulcamara's lumbering truck from which he sells his quack remedies. Donizetti deftly brings his characters alive with a sparkling score: Nemorino's love for Adina is expressed through lyrical arias; Adina's animated, flamboyant style softens as her feelings towards Nemorino begin to change—and all the while Dulcamara endlessly chatters away with irrepressible self-belief.

Andrea Chénier is the best-known opera by Umberto Giordano, one of Puccini's leading rivals. It presents a fictionalized account of the life of the pre-Romantic French poet who was guillotined during the Reign of Terror in 1794. Chénier and the servant Carlo Gérard both love the young aristocrat Maddalena. When Maddalena loses everything in the French Revolution, Chénier offers her protection, and so incites the envy of Gérard, now a powerful official. Tenor Jonas Kaufmann stars; his three arias provide highlights on an evening that also offers major opportunities to Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as his beloved Maddalena. Andrea Chénier, to be recorded live in the UK in early 2015, has become celebrated for the lyrical music it offers the tenor who takes the leading role, with the off-the-cuff Improvviso of Act I and his final aria "Come un bel dì di maggio" particular highlights. But there are thrilling moments for the whole cast, including Maddalena's ardent aria "La mamma morta," Gérard's "Nemico della patria!" and a host of dramatic duets and characterful ensembles. With a string of successes for The Royal Opera to his name, director David McVicar brings Giordano's thrilling historical drama back to the iconic Covent Garden stage for the first time since 1985.

Der Fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman), Wagner's early opera, explores the themes of damnation and redemption that continued to fascinate the librettist and composer throughout his career. In this tale of a sea captain forced to sail the seven seas for eternity until released by the faithful love of a good woman, Wagner created two unforgettable characters operating near the limits of human emotion. Tim Albery's Olivier-nominated production for The Royal Opera, to be recorded live on stage early in 2015, delves deep into the psychology of Wagner's cursed wandering Dutchman (Bryn Terfel) and his beloved Senta, detailing the monomania and uncompromising idealism that finally drives them apart. Michael Levine's elemental single set is dominated by a rolling metal hull that represents the Dutchman's phantom ship, the poverty of Senta's home and the treacherous sea. Ticketing Information

The Royal Opera's Associate Director of Opera John Fulljames directs The Royal Opera's first production of the work in collaboration with designer Es Devlin (Don Giovanni, Les Troyens).
