The day climaxes with an exclusive exploration of what happens behind the scenes at a performance at the Royal Opera House via 21 cameras, with Act III of Wagner’s The Valkyrie which was recorded earlier in the season.

Kirsty Wark will present Royal Opera Live for the whole day. There are interviews with stars of The Minotaur – John Tomlinson & Christina Rice, the ROH’s Music Director Sir Antonio Pappano, The Minotaur composer- Harrison Birtwistle, conductor Ryan Wigglesworth and Michael Portillo (on his love of opera).

The Space’s aim for Royal Opera Live is to give a wider audience access to live, world-class and unique art events and showcase the work of outstanding artists. Royal Opera Live will be a celebration of the art form of opera.
