We carry so many stories inside and when they are told they get freed up and we get the medicine. It is often in challenging situations, when we might have felt victimized, that we developed our precious gifts and strengths.
By looking at our lives as a piece of art, we bring reverence to it and find the patterns that are specific to us. As we find those patterns and become the heroines/heroes in our story, we find why we are here.

Puccini’s gunpowder western returns to the stage where it premiered under Arturo Toscanini. Boasting gunfights, poker games, and stagecoach robbers, ‘La Fanciulla del West’ combines the action of a great adventure with the emotional punch of Italian opera.
Gold Rush, 1849. Bar owner Minnie looks after a crew of rough miners while fending off the unwanted attentions of the local sheriff.

Antonio Pappano conducts an international cast in the second opera of Richard Wagner’s epic ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’.
Wagner’s ‘Ring Cycle’ is one of the greatest works of all opera. Keith Warner’s production is conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, and this final revival is cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers.
The full cycle’s four operas journey from the beginning of a world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. This epic myth portrays every type of human emotion in music and ideas of extraordinary power. ‘The Ring’ is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten.
Die Walküre (‘The Valkyrie’) is the second opera in the cycle, and features several of ‘the Ring’s’ musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Ride of the Valkyries. But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at the centre of this opera are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyrie daughter, Brünnhilde.
