This Friday, the Royal Opera House will be broadcasting Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro for just £3. It’s part of a scheme to enable people to sample opera at an affordable price in the comfort of their own homes.

Mozart’s opera is brought to life at the ROH in David McVicar’s production, set in a château in 1830. This recording from 2015 features Erwin Schrott as Figaro, Sophie Bevan as Susanna, Stéphane Degout as Count Almaviva, Ellie Dehn as Countess Almaviva and Kate Lindsey as Cherubino. The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and the Royal Opera Chorus are conducted by Ivor Bolton.

The online broadcast takes place on Friday 5th March at 7pm – and will be available online until Sunday 4th April – details are here.

Other titles currently available to view for just £3 each include La Fille mal gardée (The Royal Ballet, 2015), Il trittico (The Royal Opera, 2011), Raymonda Act III (The Royal Ballet, 2019), Tony and the Young Artists (The Royal Opera, 2021) and The Sleeping Beauty (The Royal Ballet, 2020).

All those are here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    That post launched an audio snippet in my Feedly RSS reader, which I hated, as its source was not obvious. Please don’t add auto-play anything to your posts.

      That must be a Feedly issue, as the video — as you can see above — was not configured to autoplay.
