Delightful comedy and virtuosic choreography abound in Frederick Ashton’s sunny and beloved production of “La Fille Mal Gardee” from the Royal Ballet starring Steven McRae, Roberta Marquez, Ludovic Ondiviela, Gary Avis, and Philip Mosley, the acclaimed male dancer who inspired the film and musical “Billy Elliot.” “La Fille Mal Gardee” is perfect for ballet newcomers and irresistible to audiences of all ages.

LA BOHEME (Liceu)

A warm coat, a glowing fire, a true friend, a lover’s kiss – “La Boheme” is the most romantic opera ever written. In this intimate and moving production from the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Puccini’s beloved melodies perfectly convey the palpitating desire of young, poor Parisian artists falling in love.

Sat. Aug. 18, 11 a.m.
DON GIOVANNI (La Scala)

Mozart’s ultimate bad boy meets his match in Anna Netrebko, the opera world’s “hottest female star.” “Don Giovanni” stars Peter Mattei as the philandering Don, with Bryn Terfel as his sidekick Leporello and the velvety voiced Ms. Netrebko as the much-abused Donna Anna. This audience favorite, for both its surprisingly modern plot and soaring melodies, is broadcast from opening night at La Scala with Daniel Barenboim at the podium.

Sat. Sept. 15, 11 a.m.
TOSCA (Royal Opera House)

Lust, treachery, and heartbreaking passion: “Tosca” has it all, set to one of Puccini’s most gleaming scores. With bona fide stars Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann, and Bryn Terfel heading the cast, the Royal Opera House pulls out all the stops in this decadent production by Jonathan Kent.
