A punchy new version of Verdi's early opera. Read More >

ENO’s sumptuous production of Verdi’s Ernani pulls no punches in recreating the setting and scale of Verdi’s full-blooded work. As royalty, nobility and outlaws vie with each other in a lethal blend of honour and revenge, passions reach a final breaking point all to a muscular melodic score by the young Verdi.
