The Royal Opera debut for Robert Lepage's Hollywood-set production of this tale of seduction and corruption by a pleasure-loving society. From star of the silver screen to bankruptcy and madness, it is all part of an inevitable downward cycle for the 'hero' Tom Rakewell.

Stravinsky's opera is one of the most performed of all modern operas.

Sung in English with surtitles.
