New productions of the classic 19th-century tragedies Eugene Onegin and Carmen take us from the palaces of St Petersburg to the streets of Seville. The UK premiere of Mark Adamo’s Little Women leads to progressive New England, where Jo March recalls her first love in the shadow of the American Civil War. A double bill of Delius’s Parisian melodrama Margot la Rouge and Puccini’s Gothic fantasy Le Villi contrasts a crime of passion with supernatural punishment, while a co-production of HMS Pinafore with Charles Court Opera proves that no one can mock the English more successfully than the English themselves. The City of London Sinfonia returns as resident orchestra for all five productions.
