Rigoletto on the Lake

One of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame.

It features several of opera's best-known arias-including Rigoletto's passionate denouncement Cortigiani, vil razza dannata, Gilda's dreamy Caro nome and the Duke's instantly recognisable La donna è mobile.

Directed and designed by Philip Stölzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance.

WHY? Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage

NT Live: Fleabag

Broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Why? 'Witty, filthy and supreme' ★★★★★ Guardian
