|Puccini: La fanciulla del West|
There are many strong women in the world of opera, and some of the most significant are found in the operas of Puccini. On this list of great heroines we find Minnie - the focal point of Puccini's masterpiece La fanciulla del West.
Minnie is the owner of the local bar in a rough, poor town. Here, every day is about survival and about finding happiness despite life's hardships. Amidst the harsh life in the small town, Minnie manages to add a little colour to the world and create a small breathing space for the exhausted workers.
But Minnie's oasis is threatened when she falls in love with an outlaw on the run and has to fight for her love and for the chance to start a new life with her love by her side.
La fanciulla del West is conducted by Alexander Vedernikov who will become The Royal Danish Orchestra's Chief Conductor in 2018.

|Rossini: The Barber of Seville|
The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo's debut as opera director.
True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.
In Martin Lyngbo's interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.
